Small update

Just a small update here. So I've chosen to go with the larger filter. Go big or go home... It is directly off Carrier reefer includind 90 degree gracket I think. On ebay housing is sold for duramax 1 micron fuel filter. Today I cut out back inner fender. Made access to remove/install. It's needed to make it fit. Or jamm it in there! Now biggest hurdle will be making/building/fabricating a bracket from adequate strength matal to glue it onto frame. To that bracket the 90 degree will be bolted on. Inner fender will have heavy inner tire rubber like from a tractor ,pocket on velcro. After bracket is glued to frame next will be assembly hoses, check valves and fittings. Alert fellas!!! Stainless steel filters are only good for 35 micron!!!! Spin on filter you can have all the way to 1 micron or 3,5,7,10 and possibly more! I'll go with 5 micron and bumped oil pressure by something like 12-15 psi over stock.

Smaller filter from Thermo King reefer doesn't require inner fender cut out. Smaller will be between 750ml and 1L l think. Larger over 1L easy. Larger will have more filter sizes and micron choices.

Hi Polska,

how is the new oil system running. What's your experience with it so far? You have another update for us?

Update here, not much to update really. Bad winter here and don't have heated shop. Days short and work busy. I'm only in the process of cutting out bracket that I'll glue to the frame with special body shop glue that they use to glue door skin on car doors. To this custom bracket I'll then bolt another bracket and then filter housing. I didn't want to weld it to the frame and wanted to reinforce frame to prevent possibility of cracks from vibrations when offroadin.

Slow progress.

Today I finished making/febricating a bracket that will reinforce frame and provide a secure platform to bolt a bracket with a filter. I cut it out of a plate of steel about 3.5mm thick, possibly slight overkill but hey better a little more than not enough.First cut out was no good. Had to add some more area to it. Next I'll have to glue it or epoxy it to the frame. Then the rest. Too cold here now for epoxy or glue to work. I don't think wife would want bike in the basement. But I just might try it. Basement is fully finished.😊

Just a thought ...would it be beneficial to use a diesel fuel filter housing like https://m.ebay.com.au/itm/NISSAN-PAT...MAAOSwuShae~uS for ease of priming at oil change

Im my humble opinion, not really. For a few reasons. 1 u need check valves anyway so lines would hold oil even when filter removed, o e check valve per line. 2 I'd be filling filter before installing anyway. 3 this filter head might limit your choices/selection of filters available to u. Having said all that, u probably could use it if u want to. Just plum it correctly with check valves.

I have update here boys. When temperature finally came up after winter I removed paint off the frame with wire wheel. Then roughened area with grinder for better glue adhesion. Glued bracket on that is the onlypart that l have fabricated. Next installed and adjusted 90 degree filter housing and filter to clear the spring, cut out proper shape rubber from old farm tractor tire inner tube. Installed that. Happy with how it fits. Works good.last I went to hydraulic commercial supply store and got hoses made. 3/8" diameter and all fittings same size 3/8. Installed original filter on custom filter cover and assembled all fittings. I have two check valves on external filter head. Everything fits and looks good. There is room for improvements. Next time I'll order 3/8 size check valves that'll screw directly into filter housing without the need for adapters. This time l used 1/4 npt check valves. This system added approximately 1L more engine oil. Old oil drained from before mod is in pomegranate juice bottle. Gallon jug was full of oil and you see how much I put in to fill my modded system. To fill it up l had top plugs removed and pumped oil in untill started coming out of the top, installed plugs and filled up engine untill full in glass window. Started and warmed up. Felt hoses and filter get warmer and warmer, indicating oil flowing through. Sunday going for the ride! Next mod will be wet ignition. That's probably additional 1L engine oil. The filter head that l used is from Carrier reefer unit, but it is also the same as guys are installing on diesel pickups and then install8ng 1 micron fuel filters for superior filtration. This is very popular thread type giving us lots of different filter choices. Ennoy the pictures. For added security l also put in two screws 5mm stainless steel and bolted my bracket to bike frame reinforcement bracket in that area.
