Looks like Wix reused the part number for another fuel filter, or there is a error in your book.

No. The number has been re-issued. That is not un-common in the filter industry. The filter that we are discussing has been obsolete for over 30 years. I am sure that I probably disposed of hundreds of these while working for NAPA Filters when they went obsolete.
