restrict oil flow, so relocate the oil filter in a location where gentle hose bends and, at the maximum, 450 fittings can be
used. A location inside of the frame should be evaluated.
Construct a short, heavy L-bracket to match and hold the oil filter head with the least distance possible from the frame.
The L-bracket should have at least two heavy triangular vertical gussets between the legs to provide strength. Remember
the bracket has to support not only the filter filled with oil but the weights of the connecting hose lines, the bend forces of
the hose lines and the forces exerted by the oil pressure flowing through these bends which want to straighten them out.
Now, add to this the vibration of a washboard roadway and the chuckholes encountered by the truck when empty.
