I saw that filter too (PH3614) but the PH7328 is slightly shorter with a full size diameter. It is in stock at my local auto zone. It is an older model Volvo filter.

If I KNEW the Ford Racing 90* adapter would work without hitting the lower coolant hose or belt or whatever, I would gladly buy one of those. The remote filter just doesn't look safe at all unless the high quality crimped hoses are used. Even then the routing of the hoses seems haphazard at best and a time bomb at worst. We are talking about the main supply of oil to the most critical internal engine components. A coolant line can rupture and most of the time the engine can be shut down before damage is done. This oil line ruptures and instantly the bearings are without oil. I do like the idea of a extra long filter for the extra capacity but in all honesty it isn't really needed but just a nice idea for posterity sake.

Well my radiator just started leaking on the right tank toward the bottom. I guess now is a good time to remove the oil cooler and such and replace the hoses. I am not sure which route to replace the cooler/adapter I will take but I am going to see if one of the above filters will work directly on the block. Curiosity you know.

I have my seat at the upholstery shop so I guess I will just keep it down until I get some of these little projects taken care of which I have been putting off.

You will have to change the fitting in the block, the present one is female thread, you need a male thread for the filter to screw onto.

Yeah. I have one on my ebay watch list but I wonder if the one in my old adapter will work? I will look tomorrow.

It's a different thread in the block and the adapter.

Another FYI, the hose that a few guys had thought would work, the one from a 87 with a 460, won't work because the water pump inlet end of the hose is too big. I guess the inlets are bigger on the older trucks than the 92-96.

The 89 5.8 hose does work but is not shaped as nice as the 87 460 hose. The 5.8 hose would make the Ford Racing adapter and filter pretty hard to use.

OK, I have decided on these parts and hoses.




Custom hydraulic hose with swivel fitting on one end. Should NEVER leak with just pressure from engine oil. Rated at 3900 PSI and 36" long.

The plan is to leave the filter bypass adapter on the engine and come forward and down beside the pan. Run along the crossmember with the power steering cooler lines and over to where the charcoal canisters used to be mounted on the chassis. I plan to mount the filter on its side with the bottom facing the front of the truck. Should be easy to drain and easy to remove. Will post pics when done.
