Oil Filter Adapters?


New questionNew to the site. Thanks for having me. I recently bought a 30 Plymouth truck with a 241 which was rebuilt about 10 years ago and had a new serial number stamped over the original one. Records indicate the engine originally was in a 54 truck. It has what appears to be an original remote oil filtering system. The filter canister is holding a large sock-like filtering element. The factory appearing adapter bolted to the block seems to route the oil in a manner where only oil pressure by-pass oil flows through the filter and then dumps back into the crankcase. It's been 55 years since I built a 241, so my memory is rusty. Does the original oil pump have a pressure relief? Can I convert over to one of the modern adapters without any problems? Does this engine need the "Full Flow Oil Block #20120"? Thanks.

As an update, I connected an old time oil pressure gauge in place of the sending unit. It read 60 psi at crank-up. It remained at 60 psi when I rev'd it up. I believe the builder left the oil pump bypass in working order at 60 psi.

Now all I need is to get the sending unit and gauge to read the same. The Autometer BO182-1300 0-100 gauge is reading about 15 psi below the actual pressure on the sending unit. Adding a resistor between the sending unit and gauge makes it worse, so I either need a sending unit with less resistance or a different gauge with a smaller range. The current sending unit reads .257 ohms with no pressure on it. Has anyone inherited a similar arrangement? Thanks.

I tend to use copper line & a direct pressure guageā€¦..

Not sure about one in the O/P, I believe there may be 1 in the OEM filter base. The spring loaded ball is an anti-drain back check ball. Typically it is replaced by the full flow oil block, makes sure no oil gets through, probably not much gets around the ball. Besides the 3 sold by HH, there's one that seems to be a modified Ford FE.
