That tube is standard issue on the inverted spin-on filter mount.  It 
should be press fit (not lift out).  See photos and functional 
description here:

Suitable oil filters for this adapter can be found on the same web 
page.  I happen to like NAPA Gold filters which are made by WIX and 
essentially same as WIX filters except for paint and brand 
name.  There have been very bad reviews of Fram oil filters, but it 
has been a while since those studies were published, and I do not 
know if anthing has changed more recently.
