Angry Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

My canister type oil filter no longer fits my '67 327 with my new Doug's headers. How do I convert to a spin on filter? They should be short enough to fit.

if your block has the two small holes to add a stock screw on adapter , I think thats all you need.

Re: Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

the spin on filter also comes in a long and a short, I needed the short to clear the headers.

You need an adapter for an early block the later factory ones don't work.

Anyone know where to get one? I tried NAPA, Kragen and Autozone, no luck.

EDIT: Found 'em at Summit, I guess I'll have to wait a couple of days until it comes in.

And if not mistaken, you HAVE to run the cannister check-valve fitting next to the block stacked "under/on-top-of" the aftermarket spin-on adapter OR you won't get any real oil filtration b/c all that will happen is you will just fill up the new spin-on filter!

Check me on this guy's b/c I want to tell him right??

Re: Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

Well, I just installed the new pice. It is a "Perma-Cool Brand Part No. PRM-1134".

It replaces the stock unit and does not have a check valve fitting. What are the pros/cons to bypassing the bypass valve?

Re: Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

No bypass valve means when the filter is full of dirt and debris, the oil flow will stop.

But, that's not a concern for us, is it?

Its an oil filter bypass valve. When the filter gets full from not changing it often, the valve opened up and allowed oil to bypass the filter. It was an "idiot valve" for those people who didn't change oil filter with every oil change, if they changed the oil at all.

You may want to check, it seems I remember the kit I used years ago still required the cannister O-ring to seal between the adapter and the block. I don't see a sealing device in the picture. I see the gasket for the adapter-to-block, but I don't see one for the outer ring of the adapter to the block.

Re: Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

Thanks for the clarification. Since I will be changing the filter at every oil change, it shouldn't become a problem. There is a rubber o ring that comes with the kit as well that goes around the outer ring to block. Thanks!

Re: Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

does it use a Ford type filter? They have an internal bypass so you don't need one in the adaptor.

Re: Oil filter doesn't fit with 375Y Dougs headers

Don't jazz throttle too much in cold weather until oil warms up, could pop a filter or gasket. This also puts more load on oil pump when cold and in turn more load on dist gear to cam gear... Be careful ,, over time you could wear down gear.
