Default Oil filter issue

I finally got my truck running. How ever after running for a few seconds it starts to spray oil from the oil filter (enough for a possible epa call) the filter is the Napa 1515 that's recommended the oil is SAE 30. It seem like the oil pressure is too much and blowing the seals out of the filter. Has anyone else had this problem and what can I do to fix it?

What's the pressure on the oil gauge?

Not trying to be a smarty pants but dd you make sure that the gasket from the old filter wasnt stuck to the truck when you put the new one on? I havent done that but others have and have reported this kind of problem...maybe its that simple...I hope.

Certainly worth looking into. I became aware of that many years ago and it is my standard to always look at the filter on any vehicle to be sure that it is still on the oil filter. I have seen more than one situation where the "O" ring gasket was not present on the old filter and there it was, stuck to the engine.

My oil pressure maxes out at 60 psi, so I'm thinking the pressure relief valve is stuck.

I'm having some issues insuring and registering my 68. They need a vin and I can't seem to find one. Is it different because it's military? Where should I look?
