As far as the differences in the oil filters, I'm not sure of the technical reasoning behind it, but it looks like the 84-87 filter is larger than the 81-83 filter and it has a different thread size among other things.
Below are the pics from Baldwin's website:
Looks like there might be a valve on the 84-87 filter that stops the oil from draining out of the filter.
