Re: Relocating Oil Cooler
About 10 years ago I made an adapter to convert the existing side mounted oil filter to a remote mounted oil filter. It was such a pain to change the oil and catch all of the falling oil previously. Now I just disconnect the hoses and disassemble the racor filter on the dock to clean it. Checkout some pictures here:
About 2 years ago several folks on this group asked me for the details so I removed mine and went back to the machine shop with it. I had four more made for the folks interested on this group. In the end only three people ultimatley paid me for my expenses so I have one adapter left if you are interested in this conversion.
