Hi Gang;

I have been running the remote oil filter that came with my truck for 5 years. It is the type that takes the Baldwin sock type element. It is hung on the side of the block and shares one mounting hole with the spark plug loom. I would like to upgrade to something easier to service preferably with a spin on canister and mount it on the fire wall. Anybody out there done something like this and have any feedback?

Thanks in advance, Jeff

I put a spin on filter.  Used this mount https://www.amazon.com/WIX-Filters-24755-Filter-Mounting/dp/B0014BIAG0

and this WIX filter https://www.wixfilters.com/Lookup/Exactmatch.aspx?PartNo=51050

This is a by pass filter needed for these engines.  I did have to make a mounting bracket as you can see in this picture.  I am happy with this setup and is a lot less messy.

Thanks for the info. That is the sort of thing I am after. I want to get it off the engine and perhaps mounted on the fire wall or fender. Are those flex lines you have on it?

The oil lines on the filter I have were hard lines and are it the way when removing the starter or soft plugs. I want to eliminate this situation and make other things easier to get to.

They are flex lines with NPT fittings and can be made to suit your needed length. If I remember right I got all the lines and fittings from the local NAPA store.

How cool, I saw Tanda62’s engine in another post and commented on the filter housing, and here’s your post about the same thing!

Not wanting to nitpick such a fine detailed piece of work here, but that crankcase filtered cap opening should be facing away from the radiator for the draft tube to work...if going with a PCV setup, the opening probably should be facing away from the radiator just to keep the bugs out of it :cool:

I'm looking to do the same thing and thank you for the part numbers. 

 

My only question is which line goes where on the remote base.  I've used these remote filters before and they have had an arrow indicating the "in" ports.  Which line from the engine goes into the "in" port?   I don't know which is which on the engine itself.

 

Thanks!

The best description I can give you is the upper is "IN" and the lower is "OUT"  of the filter. The mount has the "IN" on the left (towards the front of the truck) and the "OUT" on the right (towards the cab). This diagram shows it better than I can describe. Hope this helps.

 

Oh and your right JBNeal, when I took this picture I had added some oil and put the cap on backwards.  Fixed it before driving.  Always a good idea to double check your work not matter the detail! 😄
