The remote oil filter adapter was installed on the Chevelles core support with an aluminum bracket, which was rescued from the scrap bin and painted black. Make sure theres adequate space to install and remove the filter element! This adapter accepts a big-block Chevystyle filter so we dont have to restock our parts bin. Its got ports on both sides to accommodate any installation orientation. We blocked off the extra ports with the supplied pipe plugs and installed AN-10 ends on the remaining two. We found that straight hose ends allowed for a comfortable radius to snake the AN-10 lines along the top of the radiator. We needed 45-degree hose ends in and out of the oil cooler to keep the lines from kinking. Snaking the cooler lines between the fender and fenderwell kept them secure and out of view. The lines were then terminated at the engine block adapter using 90-degree hose ends to keep them away from the headers. Now, the oil leaves the engine block, passes through the relocated filter, traverses the cooler, and returns to the engine, cleaned and chilled.
