oil adaptor for bbc by pass or...

i still have the canister type oil filter on my 396 1968 (motor still in parts).
is it better to use a adapter with by pass system or a full filter system
motor has a new stock m77 pump

also there came a purple spring with the pump is it wise to
put that spring in the pump.

motor gets a re-ring kit and new bearings and cam bearings

motor 9.5 comp
280/290 .501/527 cam
ported heads
stock exhaust for now and intake

The purple spring is to make the pump into a high pressure pump, I wouldn't put it in because your installing new bearings and that will tighten the motor back up.

As far as the oil filter goes the only reason to use a relocation kit is if there are clearance problems, but I would HIGHLY recommend an adapter to use a spin on filter. The reason should be apparent about the 3rd time you change the oil, I for one do not like being covered in oil every time I change it.

And the spin on filters are alot cheaper than the cans! Just my 2cent


Doc, we will all miss you. RIP
