      Hi all:

      The restoration/reassembly of my ’66 Tiger continues. I just got the new headers from SS installed. I need some advice regarding the type of remote oil filter that some of you are using.

      I would use the original remote setup if I could locate the part that is bolted to the block. Since it is missing I thought I should look at other setups.

      Is anyone using the "right angle" setup available from Ford Racing?

      any advice greatly appreciated!

      from sunny South Dakota 🙂

      Paul:
      I machined my own found the headers from rick did not have enough clearance, also you can buy the remote filter deal from speedway motors, its an old ecoline deal, wont work for me with my
      front suspension, maybe on the new car.

      Were you using a standard type of filter withthe adaptor?.I understood you used the filter for a Ford Taraus V6 as the diameter is smaller.
      I have never installed mine as I was experimenting with a different car.I used the filter so I can not
      be 100% positive as to my memory

      Paul A,
      The missing stock adapter (from block to oil filter) may be available from Ford. Failing that, find a scrap block at your local junk yard and apply brute force via a 1-1/4 inch hex and a very long bar. Do not let it slip!
      As you probably know, there is a nice picture of the offending part on the front cover of Tom Monroe’s “How to Rebuild your SBF”.
      Once you have this item you can fit the following parts (or similar) which use ½ inch NPT fittings:

      Spin-on oil filter by-pass adapter

      Remote oil filter bracket
      http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TRD-1045/

      The remote filter bracket can be mounted in the left front fenderwell just behind the headlight, or, IF you can find some space, in the engine bay.
      I used the fenderwell. Naturally you will need to cut 2 holes in the inner fender panel doing it this way.
      You can also incorporate an oil cooler into this system if required.
      Fittings can be either push-on with worm drive hose clamps or the more expensive Aeroquip type.
      Preferably use 5/8 inch I.D. braided oil hose to minimise any slight reduction in oil pressure.

      Paul A,
      This is probably the part you are looking for, but do double-check before ordering.

      This is a Silver Seal Oil Filter Adaptor # FA302.

      Thanks for all the tips. This is where things are as of Friday afternoon.

      I installed the Ford Motor Sports right angle adapter. To the best of my knowledge, and with lots of help from the guys at Advance Auto, there is no spin-on filter that will work with the right angle adapter and the headers from SS. There is not enough clearance between the adapter and header tube on one side and there is limited clearance with the steering apparatus on the other.

      I think the original block adapter and hoses will work with the headers. But, as it turns out, I do not have the special, hollow fastening bolt that attaches the adapter plate to the block. Oh well……….

      BTW, installing the right angle adapter with the headers already on the engine was a bit challenging. I had to unbolt the drivers side header from the engine to be able to move it aside far enough to get the filter adapter installed. After all that to find there was no way to install a spin-on filter was more than a little frustrating.

      So, this afternoon, I ordered a remote filter relocation kit. Maybe next Wednesday I can go back to work on it.

      from sunny South Dakota,

      That will spin on with club headers?

      Yes I got the headers on my car and the filter fits fine . I even have a Caton 7qt oil pan on the motor.
