Keep in mind if you do not have an oil cooler on the series I, you may be able to run the larger filter... But the location of the filter changed a hair over the years, some will go past the frame others will be inline with the frame... And you'd want to make totally sure that the filter will not stick out beyond the frame...

Do you HAVE to run the 52 with 5 quarts? I run the 47 and change it every time I change the oil.

The 52 is larger, therefore it'll need some more oil. A 5 qt mobil 1 jug fills mine a hair over the crosshatch.

Don't put 5 quarts in with the stock PF47 filter. Never over-fill with oil or trans fluid. Or any other fluid, either.

K, thanks. I'll have to remember that.
