SBC Iron Eagle Block - Need help

Need some help with the correct routing for the oil lines from the oil outlet from wet sump oil pump on the block to a remote oil filter and then back to the front and rear oil feeds in the block. Or if someone could refer me to a place I could see a cutaway view of the block I could make sure I'm about to do this correctly. Thanks

Remote FIlters come with a adaptor plate that fastens to the oil filter boss. Two hoses attach to it and run to another adaptor that accepts the oil filter. No need to plumb into oil galleries and all that craziness. To do it the way your talking would requijre drilling and tapping into the main oil gallery above the filter boss but you getting really close to a dry sump applications.

Thanks for the reply, but the Dart Iron Eagle does not have a oil filter boss. There is no place on the block to spin on a oil filter. You must use a remote filter and the block is already tapped for a outlet for the a wet sump application. I guess my question is - is oil being push to the filter at this point or pushed from the filter into the pump area. If being pushed up to the filter, which one, the front/back or both for in putting oil? Any help would be appreciated.
