There is only one way the oil filter fits in. I'm pretty sure the open end is out.

Actually, if using a Ready filter (a low cost copycat of a Scotts) with a Ready Racing cover, you can put it in backwards because they left out the stub that prevents people from doing that. The open end should be out, toward the cover.

I use Amsoil MCF 10w-40. Oil weights and requirements are listed in section 2 and 3 of the manual.
