Hey all:
I want to install a bypass filteration system on my truck come spring time so I'm trying to read up on it now to see what I need to get and how much.
So I called the AMSOIL jobber and he told me he had a BMK11 system for me. I would have to put a tee in the OP switch for one line there and the other would go to the dip stick tube. I don't want to go anywhere near the OP switch.
So is there a system that will have an adapter where the oil filter goes (I have a 4X4 so the filter is oriented front to back) and have two lines go from there to the other adapter plate where the regular oil filter will fit and also the bypass filter. I am assuming that I will have to fit this to the frame rail somewhere. Also, what brand and how much.
Any input will be appreciated.

Must be a different jobber:) kidding
Here is a link to the bypass page. http://www.amsoil.com/StoreFront/bf.aspx
The BMK-13 is a universal mount. If you click on the bmk-13, the instruction page comes up. It has a list of the of which adaptor to use based on the filter that currently goes on your truck. Yours would be the EaO24, so you use the blue ring. This goes where your current filter is. It looks and works the same as the BMK-17ea that made specific for the duramax, but this one was made to fit most other vehicles.
I'll send you pricing on it.

You want to use the BMK17 because it uses bigger lines. Also because of the torsion bars you will not be able to use the mount that comes with it. We have a custom bracket made to mount on the frame and get you away from the torsion bars. The BMK series kits will bolt right up to it. They are made of 10ga steel and powder coated. you can see it here http://www.lubricationspecialist.com/front/shop.aspx?catid=10&parentid=0&curr_page=3

Hey Greg,

Is there a remote adapter that can take the place of the 4x4 adapter. I would love to remove that thing if i could to eliminate the chance for more leaks. I think I have seen someone that had the 4x4 adapter removed and the remote adapter mounted in its place like on a 4x2. Only thing is that it looked like the bottom half of a filter with the ports on the side, and not like the flat looking adapters with the ports on the bottom. Any idea what i'm talking about?

Yes you can do that but you need to use a street L or get the long and short fitting from Amsoil.

Hey all:
I read Greg's (Lubrication Specialists) posting about getting a BMK17 kit for my truck.
So my confusion is about the spin on casting that goes to the engine block. Heath stated that the kit I should get is the BMK 13.
The BMK 17 kit is for a Duramax application.
My question is--does the 6.5 TD of my trucks year (1992) use the same oil filter as the Duramax? I use the EAO24 AMSOIL filter for my truck.
If the answer is yes, then I could use the BMK17 kit.
My main concern is the spin on casting that comes with each kit.
The BMK 13 seems to have adapters that would allow the spin on casting to fit to the block, while the BMK 17 kit doesn't seem to come with any.
By the way, thanks to Greg and Heath for your info. It's appreciated.

No the 6.5TD does not use the same filter but they do have the same thread and gasket diameter. I have used the BMK17 on many a 6.5. The BMK 13 adapter is a two piece adapter and the BMK 17 is a one piece.
