oil filter relocator??
Does anybody know if you can put a 90 degree fitting on a relocator coming out of the block, or does that put to much restriction on the flow of the oil? I am having a hard time trying to find a place to mount the filter w/out putting a kink in the hose. thanks

My friends blazer had a 350 in it and he used a very sharp bend in his with no problems hope that helps.

I had this same problem once.The problem was the holes were too close together to screw in 2 90's.I had someone make me up 2 stainless steel 3/8 pieces about 7 ins. long.They bent a 90 on them.One end had a fitting to screw on the block adapter the other end had a fitting for the hose to screw on.Maybe you could find a hydrulic hose shop in your area that could come up with something like this. ;) 02-07-2003 05:28 AM

Flow rate is actually pretty slow so any full-flow hydraulic fitting should work fine. I have the same problem w/ my Willys and have pretty sharp 90s on the block w/ no porblems. There are many, much sharper turns inside the block than you will ever have on the outside!

You can get one from a early 90s & up Corvette that bolts rite up for a relocator. Price not to bad.
