Question oil filter adapter

This is probably a bumb question, but I'm stumpted! I recently bought a 1984 5.7L Corvette with a massive oil leak. I soon discovered that the hoses on a after market oil cooler was the problem. The cooler was also damaged and leaking so I removed it along with an adapter. However, when I tried to spin on a stock filter, their was not enough threaded pipe on the block. My question is do I have to get a stock adapter. I'm trying to learn as I go and would appreciate any help.

the stock oil filter adapter can be found on any small block you are probably going to need one. There are two bolts holding it on (7/16 or 11mm)put it on your engine and the regular filter will go on you can get one from the dealer or another engine(boneyard?)simple task

this is the exactly problem I had when I put a set of afterburner flowtech's on my of my k5's. I either had to run a short filter, which was still tool close to the headers, or put the stock oil stem back on.

a stock oil stem isn't that much anyway. I just blew the engine, about 5 months ago, in one of my k5's because it blew a leak in an oil cooler line while I was driving it (stock lines - no mods) so I'm not going to run oil coolers anyway.
