    I've mentioned this before on here. Just some info to consider. A reputable Studebaker motor rebuilder (Mark Frank) told me that he's seen more wear on crankshafts of flathead Studebaker motors when the motor had the optional bypass filter than when they didn't have a filter. His guess was that the filter reduced oil pressure to the crankshaft bearings enough to cause the extra wear. Consequently, he recommended I remove the filter from my 185 Champion six, and simply change the oil every 2000 miles.

      Hey Gregg (supersonictoys) really nice adapter! [^]

      I tried to email you, but when you registered you did not include an e-mail! This is totally discrete and does not display the email address, it just sends to it, and of course if you respond to an email only then would the other member get your address![:0]

        weird, I am sure I included my email when I signed up . I will check it out. anyway, DilloCrafter, my frantz filter has a built in restrictor and even when warmed up and idling my oil pressure light is out. I can actually look down the breather tube with a flashlight and see that here is just a trickle of oil actualy being put back into the motor by the filter retun line. cant imagine it doing any harm. Im sure there are other brands of bypass filters out there that do rob alot more pressure from the system but this one doesnt seem too.

              I'm certainly not the one to ask to confirm that, but I'm sure Mark Frank (who told me about it) will answer that for you. I found his page on the StudebakerVendors.com site. His email address and phone number are on it. I'd be interested for you to post here if you talk to him and he sheds some more light on the subject:

                I've always wondered just how much oil is delivered by an oil pump. Since these are gear pumps, the flow should be independent of the pressure and depend only on engine rpm. But, how many quarts or gallons per minute is a Champ 6 or Stude V8 oil pump good for? I have always assumed that they would pump 10-20 quarts a minute or more, even at low rpm. Anyone know the answer?
