Does anyone know the filter size that will fit on the Permacool head here... http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=PRM%2D10678?? I was thinking about using this for my post-OEM setup instead of the CAT head that I think is causing my issues. I would like to use the CAT 1R-0750 filter.


Here are the filter dimensions (from the WIX site):



<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=2>
<T>
<TR vAlign=top>
<TD class=blackmedium>Style:</TD>
<TD class=blackmedium>Spin-On Fuel </TD></TR>

<T>
<TR>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle colSpan=4>Gasket Diameters</TD></TR>
<TR>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>Number</TD>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>O.D.</TD>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>I.D.</TD>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>Thk.</TD></TR>
<TR vAlign=bottom bgColor=#ffffff height=25>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>Attached </TD>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>2.715 </TD>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>2.430 </TD>
<TD class=blackmedium align=middle>0.250 </TD></TR></T></TABLE></TD></TR></T></TABLE>


Thanks in advance..

I can't give you the specifics on the measurements, but I can say that there are a numbers of users on the forum using CAT filters with the permacool head. Its the same setup I plan to use for my pre-OEM filter.

<DIV>The Cat 1R-0750 filter fits on the Perma-Cool Head, Part No. 81794. </DIV>
<DIV>You will have to drill and Tap the flat spot on the top of the head</DIV>
<DIV>for a bleed valve, 1/8 - 27 NPT using a 11/32 drill. Just thread deep</DIV>
<DIV>enough to make the bleed valve fit flush with the inside when tight.</DIV>
<DIV>Use Loctite Hi-Tack gasket sealant on all the threads to seal as per instructions on the can and try not to smear it on the inside.</DIV>

I mounted my bleed valve on the out port on the front side of the head, works good. I used a brass radiator drain valve. This keeps the overall height of the unit down a little as there is not much hood clearance.

Thanks guys. Doesn't look like there is any issues or special adaptors needed.


Is the top drill/tap into the outlet port of the head? I wouldn'tthink that a bleed valveoff the front out port would be any different than the top drill/tap. The front mount would be nicer to catch the bleed juice with a cup.


Thanks again... I'm ordering.
