Bill, did all of those 460's have that cooler? I thought it was only the E series that had them?

I pulled one off an F-350 Cab and Chassis dump truck, probably 88 or 89 because it had the frame mounted high pressure pump and the fuel lines went over the front of the left valve cover. In my "major rework on 1986 F-350" thread are some pictures of it.

Took me a while, but I found it. I think it was on page 25. I forgot how extensive that project was. It reminded me that I don't need to question you on any OBS topic!

I did this about 2 months ago. I ordered a new radiator, all new gates hoses, new belts and a 180* Tstat. I ordered a oil filter relocation adapter for the engine block and a remote filter mount. I planned to use custom hydraulic hoses to connect the two.

Problem #1 turned out to be that the straight out block adapter did not leave enough room to install JIC 45* adapters for the hoses.




So I ordered a 90* adapter and it allowed plenty of room.






I put in all the new parts. I found that the heater hoses were original Ford as well as the lower hoses that connected to the oil cooler! I went to the Parker hose store after some measuring and had my oil hoses made. I used really nice sheathed 2 wire hydraulic hose with JIC ends. I really recommend the Parker store over ordering hoses with the relocation adapters in a kit. You get the perfect length for your truck and much better quality. These hoses are rated at 3000 psi, 300*, are 34" long and should last the life of the truck. I mounted the filter on the right side of the chassis, it is up out of harms way but easy to get to for oil changes. I made a little bracket to keep the hoses safe and another little bracket to keep the block adapter from ever loosening on the block. It connects to a stud on the exhaust manifold and to the adapter as a safety precaution for my peace of mind.










No leaks, no issues and looks factory.
I am glad to see that the Ford 90* adapter works.

Did you use both of those parts or is the first one unnecessary with the second? I don't get how it attaches to the straight out fitting, or does it use the ford racing adapter?

Does the 90* adapter allow for the same amount of flow or is it necked down?

First one was not used, it did not allow enough clearance for the hose setup I wanted to use.
Second one allows plenty of room.

The adapter simply threads onto the block where an oil filter would go if there was room. The block insert has to be changed to a threaded one. The one in the truck with the oil cooler is not threaded. I used this one from ScramSpeed, he is on Ebay

I'm looking at doing this too with the Ford Racing adapter, do you think there would be room to put a 1" thick sandwich adapter between the block and 90* filter adapter to run an air/oil cooler? I tow with my truck and like the idea of having the oil being cooled, I'd likely run -10AN hose from the sandwich to the cooler if it would work out.
