327 canister to spin on oil filter

I'm rebuilding 1968 327. I want to convert to spin on filter and have the correct conversion kit (AC Delco). The kit instructions say that I need the original equipment by-pass valve plate in order to get proper seat and seal for gasket. I do not have that part. I will check GM parts for availability this morning (not hopefull), and then head to the auto wrecker. I see Summit offers a spin on filter mount with out the high pressure bypass valve. Would this be feasable on a street engine? I'm confused as to by-pass valve application or the directly through the filter application.

Just curious - what you mean by cansiter to spin on oil filter. I have 68 327 and it has the "typical" oil filter which spins/screws on. Does your engine have a filter in a can type?

Before 68, Chevy used the canister in a can type filter. It's been years since I did one of those, but I was told that there were some quality kits and some junk........One the cheap ones, not all the oil was getting filtered. A lot was getting bypassed.

I know that the Novas had a different mounting boss for the clutch linkage...If you put another Chevy block in your Nova, you had to adapt the clutch "Z" bar to it. if I remember right........Cant see that they would have a different filter. Maybe......

How wide is the cast part that the rubber seal of the filter seals on?

Or, does it seal on the aluminum insert in there?

I just finished this conversion on my 327.

Had to get the kit from GM, the one that NAPA sold was not a goot fit.

You might not beable to get the bypass part from GM. They told me that they no longer stock them. (But that here in Ontario)

At a JunkYard look for late 60's early 70's 350 with the bypass part but that is already a screw on type filter. With this you do not need the conversion kit from GM just new gaskets.

Good Luck.
