Canister to spin on oil filter adapter?

I know this question has been asked here, but I didn't see the answer I was looking for. I have a 62' 327 motor that I want to use a regular spin on type oil filter. It is setup for the old Canister style. I got an adapter from summit, but it needs the by-pass valve, which I don't have. Should I just re-order the kit that includes this, or should I go to the junkyard and root around for this? I also see advice to use a good quality one. Can someone suggest a good quality kit for this? Thanks!

I have had very good luck in returning items to Summit. If they have it, sounds a lot easier to send it back than hit the junk yard.

It is true, returning an item to Summit is great, if that part was not in the kit. If that part was not part of the kit you will have to pay shipping back to Summit. You will have to pay shipping regardless, you just will not be reimbursed for it. It may be cheaper to go to junk yard or to a GM dealer.

could always run a filter with a bypass in it if you don't want to return it.
