Remote Oil Filter Lines

Post  BigDave65 on August 19th 2011, 9:25 pm

This '57 Ford I'm finishing up is going to require a remote oil filter. I believe I'm going to order the adapter from L & L. It looks like a really nice piece. I'm wondering what size lines are required for this, -6, -8, or maybe even a -10? I know their kit comes with lines but I need to use SS braided lines on this car. Engine is 521, iron CJ head, about 700 hp, wet sump, HV Melling oil pump, just standard stuff.

Thanks, David

Thanks guys, wasn't sure if the -10 may be too big for a wet sump. I've got a bunch of used fittings from old Cup cars. I'm hoping I have something I can use.

-10 is not too big.....the i.d. of the -10 hose is 9/16". The -8 is too small at 7/16".
-10 will get the job done and Fabio's -12 is not too big.

Just a ? I thought -8 was 1/2 I am using 1/2 line on my -8 push locks or is the braided line smaller for the braided hose to fit under the ring make the inside smaller than the rubber line.

Thamk Lem I know now when I go with a braided line I need to step up a size to keep the volume up to par.I thought they just used a smaller od but see now they use a smaller id hose.

Sorry for the highjack Dave

Not a problem Jim, we're all here learning stuff.

Thanks for the info guys. I think I have enough -10 to plumb this thing. Just have to buy some adapters.

If you're looking for a top quality remote filter mount, CV Products makes a really nice unit. Although it's pricey, it's a nice piece of work. Top quality machining, large ports with chamfered openings, and available in about 5 or 6 filter sizes. Even the big 1-1/2 -16 thread diesel filter I use on my car. It doesn't come with the fittings though, so that's going to raise the price some more. But they also have a radius entry for smoother flow.

That is a nice looking piece Doug, thanks for the info. I'll check them out. CV Products is only about an hour from me.

Generally and for typical remote filter installs, a -10 AN braided line is the smallest hose one should use. For send/return lines that get considerably long (greater than 4 feet each), go with a larger line such as a -12 AN or more.

Product Engineering make some really nice billet aluminum ball-milled rermote filter adaptors for the Ford engine block; be sure to ask for the -10 AN version. This would work well with the remote filter mount shown above.

Looks to be the thinnest one I've seen. Not much bigger than the fittings. Don't think it could be made any thinner. That is nice. Very Happy

Personally on the builds I do ... -12 from the block to the filter and -10 from the filter back to the block.
Makes it real difficult for someone to accidentally put 'em on backwards.
NO angle fittings other than High Flow hose ends.

I have used the FRPP right angle adapter for a block mounted filter in a lot of cases.

The engine already has one of the older style of this type on it. In this new car the steering shaft is too close for that type adapter to work.
