older small block question

I've got an old 327 in the machine shop. It has double hump heads on it. They are either 461's or 462's. I can't remember. My engine builder called, and said I need to locate me an oil filter assembly. He said I need an oil by-pass valve assembly. Where can I get this? Any help will be deeply appreciated.

filter?

Is it one of those replaceable filter cartridges or the modern screw on filter? The modern screw on type can be taken off any sb or bb. They are all the same. Make sure you get the two bolts that hold it on. They are a special item.

The dealer may have one, but be sure it's the one for the older block. There are more than one, and the one for a '72 350 is not the same as the one for a '67 327. I tried it, but it didn't work. I believe the change-over year was '68.

I bought one from a Chevy dealer and it ran about $35.00. Probably could have got one from a junkyard for a few bucks.

Pre 68 used a canister type of filter assembly. There were adapters available so you could use a spin on filter. Not all of these were good quality and some didn't allow the filter to work properly, the oil just bypassed it. If using an adapter make sure it is of good quality......I can't remember which were the good or bad ones, off hand.

huh?

Why not just drill and tap the block for the genuine post 67 adapter? it's apart anyway. Poncho62's comments make sense, 68 coincides with the change to large journal cranks across the board.

FRAM & WIX (NAPA) filter companies offer this conversion for a screw on filter.

You can't do that, there needs to be a seal surface for the filter's rubber "O" ring, pre 68 didn't have this....an adapter is necassary.

The "small journal" blocks (with cannister filter) also have a bypass plate which needs to be installed prior to installing the spin on adapter. I went through this crap with a 67 Camaro I built a few years ago. I ended up just junkyard crawling the complete cannister set-up to avoid separating an original complete assembly. Instead of the cannister, I could have used the bypass and base, an aftermarket filter adapter, and a spin-on.
