My Dual Oil Filter Relocation Mod.

I wanted to share my oil filter relocation mod. with anyone that's interested. My goal was to gain extra filtration, more oil capacity, and to get rid of the 4x4 filter adapter. I succeeded in all but the last. I tried five ways of sunday to get it to work, but even with the an grade swivel 90's from Jegs, the tolerance to the front drive shaft u joint was to close for my comfort level.
For my oil filter adapter I used perma-cool part# 114
The dual filter adapter is perma-cool part# 1223
The following are the AN fittings and hose from Jeg's
2555-103207-10AN X 1/2"NPTM STRAIGHT
2555-103227-10AN X 1/2" NPTM 90
1555-100932#10 HOSE PRE-CUT 10-FEET I recommend also putting in new O-rings in your 4x4 filter adapter, which you can get at the gm dealer, or I got mine from Leroy Diesel. One thing I want to warn anyone doing this, is when you read the perma-cool directions, they say not to use thread sealant if using AN fittings. Ignore that direction and use Teflon tape on the threads, trust me. For my mount I used a piece of angle iron and drilled it out for the dual filter mount, then drilled 3 holes in it to mount up to the drivers side floor board. I also cut some rubber pieces to go between the angle iron and floor board, and the angle iron and filter mount to absorb and reduce any vibrations. Be sure and use some large washers on the inside of the cab floor board. For the filters im running the extra capacity 1794 Napa filters. This gives me a total oil capacity of 10 Quarts. Except for still having to retain the 4x4 adapter, im happy with the outcome of this mod.

Its the adapter gm put on 6.5 4x4 trucks to angle the filter horizontally toward the front of the engine. There wasn't enogh room for it to hang straight down because of the front drive shaft.

I've always wanted to do this, looks great! Such a pain to change the filter in these trucks without spilling oil everywhere. At least it keeps the front U-joints lubed up.

Right at $200.00 for parts, not including filters and extra oil. The AN fittings and stainless hose was the most expensive parts. You could save a little by only ordering a 6' section of hose and save a little, but I wanted the extra for another project.
