Has anyone used a remote system to relocate their oil filter? Do the Cummins specific applications have a port for the turbo oil line?
If it's an adapter that is for a GM V8, it's not going to work on the Cummins.Mine is a Permacool too but I got it from AA. Uses a generic Ford Screw on filter. My kit was for a GM V8 so it should just screw right onto the engine, since my engine is CPL858 GM van app.
Randy, if the 1/2" hose will fiow enuf, I think the 3/8" or smaller i.d. of the brass fittings will NOT flow enuf gmp. look inside the 1" x16 threaded fitting that the cummins filter screws on to. the brass fittings you use should be at least that size, ID. the oil pickup tube in the cummins pan is about 1&1/4" OD. it is areally high VOLUME oil system. I think you should be running 3/4" hose and at least 1/2" pipe threads on your adapters. I`d hate to see you have engine durability issues because of insufficent oil FLOW capacity. It`s just my opinion based on the number of big block and small block chevy engines that had bearing (rod and main) issues when the owner used 1/2" hose to relocate their oil filter. after I rebuilt their engine and replaced the oil filter adapters with i/2" pipe threads and 3/4" hose fittings and hose, they had no more bearing issues. Please do some research on this issue before you put your scrambler on the road. :beer::beer:My goodness, I guess I'll just have to look into all of these issues.
The filter I got was a 1515. Sure looks the same size as the one on the engine but I'll check to see if it is going to make any difference, cuz if the other filter flows more then it is because it is not filtering as fine, or maybe it is running at a higher pressure? The filter cannisters are the same or nearly so. There are some holes around the outside and a hole in the center. .. Theres nothing else it could be.
As far as the threads go if they are wrong I'll probably just walk 15 feet to my machine shop and change them. I can do that.
With real hyd hoses that are 18" long and 1/2" id I don't see any problem with flow. The added length will have little to no effect. there will be no drain back as the filter is below the engine oil outlet.
But still I'll make sure before I jump.
Thanks for the heads up guys
