235 motor

I have a 1960 235 motor I am planning on some day to put into my 1953 gmc truck. It had no oil canister when I got it. It has a fitting in one hole and by the sending unit it has a bolt in that hole. I've read where some say to connect the two together and others say to get a canister and put a filter on it. The motor in the truck now is a 1953 248. The guy I got the truck off of said it had a crank bearing go bad and he replaced it but you can still hear it knock a little. Could use any help. Thanks

Are you planning to pull the oil pan and address the bearing issue or what?

For the 235. There are kits that convert the oil filter to a full flow unit. involves drilling and tapping a hole and pluging an existing passage. ...The old GM design does not filter too much of the total oil pumped.

I guess what I am planning on doing is getting the 235 ready and put it in before working on the 248. I guess my best bet is to go to a junk yard and look for and try to find a canister to mount on the motor. I have checked out the the bracket for the spin on filter. If I were to rebuild the motor I would go with this type of filter system. I just don't want to mess the 235 up with an oil issue.
