  • Engine: Mounting the screw-on-bypass oil filter base remotely off the engine

    Anyone have a photo of the screw-on oil filter mounted base-up and on the body or chassis away from the top front of the Stude V8 engine?

    We had a potential customer complaining about the original position of the filter base being in the way and ugly and upside-down. I told him remote mounted oil filters is an everyday thing in the hot rod/race builds, but somehow, he couldn't get his head around the possibility.

    I remember doing a few of these back in the day, even one using a hot rod base with two oil filters, but never took any photos of Studes. (I thought about showing him photos of remote filters on other makes, but he'd only believe it will work if he sees it on a Stude.)

    I have a remote transmission filter mounted on the inner fender of the Avanti. Uses the same filter as engine oil.

      I probably need to do this as my car has no filter. I know that is OK from LOTS of previous experience, but it would be so much easier not having to explain it to folks that don't remember that is just the way things were ! Would the 2 oil lines still hook to the same places as the front mount add-on or later cars had ? (mine is a 55 coupe V-8) Our 56 Hawk had the upside down filter and I thought it was a great idea, but just don't want one there on this car.

        Yes. For a neat look, have custom lines made up, but it's possible to use hose barb fittings and hose clamps on cut-it-yourself-to-fit bulk hose.

        Fifty years ago, I have a vague recollection of taking the pressure line from the cylinder head over to the fenderwell mounted filter housing and the return line was plumbed into a tee screwed into where the dipstick goes into the oil pan.

              There is a bit of an misunderstanding here, John Byrd is wanting a Remote mounted "Partial Flow" Oil Filter, and you mentioned a FULL Flow Filter conversion.

              If this is the Major re-routing of Oil passages by blocking the internal passage and drilling the Block in the rear and running a line through the rear "Web" of the Block, that is a LOT more special work that must be done with the engine out, not a Sat. afternoon job.

                Click image for larger version  Name:	z.png Views:	0 Size:	43.8 KB ID:	1828073 I just completed this same installation on my Sky Hawk. I soldered in the end of the fitting which comes from cylinder head, and drilled a .040 hole in it. Since the PSI is low, I used Compression fittings.

                  I think that you are wanting pictures of the oil filter like on my 1960-with the bracket. I don't know why it should be so hard to get a picture of what he wants. Weren't some mounted on the left of the oil filler pipe? My 60 has it on the right side, is that what you are after? I checked in the shop manual and nothing definitive.

                    OK getting back to being closer to John Byrd's question as Bill is saying.

                    Click image for larger version  Name:	Sky Hawk 289.jpg Views:	0 Size:	148.0 KB ID:	1828139 It is the CANISTER Type Fram F3 or F4 that take a C3 or C4 Element like this, that I THINK John wants. This is a '56 Sky Hawk but MAY have another brand not Fram, Walker, Purolator?

                    These were used on V8's from 1951 to 1957 before the Spin-On Type upside Down Type came out, which are NOT correct for his '55 OR his '56.

                      Actually, the title of the thread and the o. p. stated he wanted the screw on type. The screw on base just mounts to the oil stand pipe through a bracket. You can remove it from that and make a bracket and mount anywhere you want, as long as it is plumbed properly.

                        Thanks for all the responses guys, I'm just wanting to mount a filter "somewhere" besides on the filler pipe like my Sky Hawk had. purely a personal choice of "the look". My car is far from stock, so that is absolutely no concern....The previous owner put some President parts, some Speedster parts, some Avanti parts, a custom upholstery job, and a 62 Lark engine along with the salt flat wheels and radials. Oh, My car (per the build sheet) was a yellow and white Commander in it's 1st life, but he had it painted black also. He may have been like me, and thought cars were just manufactured to a certain level, then sold so we could finish them "properly" to our individual tastes, ha ! Thanks again to each of you.
