Hey guys, yes I'm still here. This project was supposed to be a 'quickie' and cheap as possible...it has been anything but that. The engine is finally finished, RAM clutch assembly is here and now I just need to put it together. Due to the frame rail being so close to the filter mounting pad I had an oil filter adapter made by a local machine shop. I was going to use a short Mopar filter like a Wix 51085, but this adapter will open up my filter options a little bit and allow me to use a Motorcraft FL820-S, a Wix 51372 or Moroso 22463. According to the Wix website the 51372 is the same dimensions as the 51085 but flows more oil. I could have gotten an adapter from TMeyer or Blue Thunder but that would have required a taller filter, exactly what I didn't need. Not to mention the flow and micron specs are a little more in line with the filters I mentioned.
