That Autohausaz place is great! I was going to buy a shutoff valve somewhere else for $70, but this place has them for $20!! And I got a air cleaner housing brace for $12 (retails over $100)! I also bought a new primer pump for less than $10. Plus I got 4 upper control arm bushings, a new oil filler cap, 2 brake pad sensors, new antenna seal, and a new breather hose all for $70 including shipping! I am a happy camper!

This filter is a tad more expensive than buying the parts and building one urself but more than half the price of the frybrid or greaseworks sandwhich design.

Concerning the "oil cooler" posted in the ebay auction (link in posts above).

This does not appear to be a heat exchanger, but a remote mount filter head and a sandwich "diverter" that mounts to the block.

The seller has the two assembled together to give the appearance that it would be a remote filter and a heat exchanger, but I do not believe that this is what it is.

I believe he simply put them together because they would fit.

If anybody has evidence otherwise, please do share (because I sincerely hope I'm wrong...I really would like it to be a heat exchanger).

Thanks,
Clem

many of these or simular have been continualy added to the DIY/FAQ thread over the years. In this thread there is a cheap part link for both building collection equipment and one for building a WVO powered vehicle etc.

I'll explain my thoughts a little better, hopefully.

To the muscle car crowd, an external oil cooler is usually added with one of these "sandwich" adapters the goes between the block and the filter. This is plumbed in SERIES with the filter and simply allows a point for the hot rodder to "tap in" to the oil system so he can run a hose to and from the air-to-oil exchanger (typical, cheap transmission or oil cooler).

So when the seller says "oil cooler" he is referring to the "oil cooler adapter" that we see threaded onto the remote mount filter head...I think

The adapter will easily spin on to the remote filter head (it's designed to attach where an oil filter does), the seller, for whatever reason, has them attached this way. But I'm relatively certain that it's not a heat exchanger.

What he seems to have listed is a filter head similar to this and an oil cooler adapter similar to this

I just don't want to see anybody buy that and have it not be what they are expecting. Again, I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

use a sight glass that has meatal hose fittings... do not us the plastic screw in type they will crack (I ran one for about 5k before the plastic ends cracked in half)
http://store.summitracing.com/default.asp?Ntt=fuel+filt...target=egnsearch.asp
You can buy the sight glass here or Autozone has them for about $10.
do not over tighten the glass itself it can crack .. (I have done that too) however make sure it is not leaking air some times they vibrate loose just enought for a small leak so check for drips ... good luck Omar

It has been reported that some of these cheapies like Autozones are manufactured with a Zink compound metal. There fore they eventually fall apart with long exposure to veg. oil. Small materials may be breaking away from the zink housing into your fuel system durring its demize
