    If I read this correctly, you are trying to plumb a partial flow filter into an engine, that never had a full flow filter, as a full flow filter. The partial flow filter system that you plan on using for full flow has a restrictor in the lines to control the oil through the filter. I can't imagine that you will get enough oil through the restrictor for all of your engine's needs. If you remove the restrictor, I think that you may be asking too much of that filter system.
    My basic question is: Why do you want to attempt this? The correct partial flow filter system for that six is more than enough with modern oils, light use and frequent oil changes.

    A pressure relief valve.

    Full Flow Flathead

    I getting ready to go over to Lowe's to find a plug to put into the outlet of my oil pump on my 56 185. Then I'll run a line from the outlet on the outside of my pump to a 57 289 filter and then from there back to the oil gallery. Then I'll just plug the return line hole in the side of the oil fill tube. I AM concerned with too much pressure on a cold morning blowing the filter right off. It needs a pressure relief valve. Is there already one in there somewhere? What's that thing up near the front behind the timing gear cover? It has about a 7/8" head.
