Relocating the Oil Filter

Anyone seen this kit that Perma-Cool makes for relocating the HARD TO GET TO oil filter? Four Wheeler has a pretty good writeup of it here Four Wheeler
Anyone actualy done this, and if you have, where did you mount the new filters? An "underhood support" is kinda vague, so a more precise location would be nice.

Re: Relocating the Oil Filter

I've used it and its ok. Your better off buying the TransDapt peices and using some Parker hoses and ends. The kit form is ok but I've been told by folks I trust that 1/2" is too restrictive. The real pricey high end remote set ups are 5/8" ID. hose. I used the TD block peice and remote peice($25. 4 both) and 5/8" Parker brand hose and ends($30.) The total was around $60. and I now have a mess free filter change and Instant Oil pressure.

Some part #.TRD-1013 & TRD 1028.

Also if you need a cheap kit and dont care about hose size, Summit has a kit for $35. Part # SUM-G4985.


GoodLuck.

Re: Relocating the Oil Filter

Thanks Sixlitre, that FSB forum helped. The only problem is all those guys used the single-filter kits instead of the dual filter kits.

I ain't-a-gonna use one until I can afford an accusump or moroso 3 quart pressurized reserve can for initial startups.

Re: Relocating the Oil Filter

Prolly gunna end up doing a single filter setup and mounting it somewhere on the inner fender.

Just curious, but does this setup, with longer lines and a longer travel for the oil to the filter and back put any extra stress on the oil pump, having to go the extra distance, probably upwards too?
