y block remote oil filter

I am currently installing a 292 y block out of a 62 ford F100 into a 52 ford p/u.
The current cartridge/canister type oil filter hits the steering box. I'm looking for a remote oil filter that would fit the 4 1/2" dia. mouth opening at the block. Everything on the market I have been able to find has a 3 1/2 dia. opening and will not cover the filter feed hole coming from the block.
Any ideas ???

Google this company: Exeter Auto, they are an Offenhauser dealer they did have these available as did Trans-Dapt at one time,Trans-Dapt has discontinued a lot of the older parts.

Y block oil filter

Will any of these Y block photo's help you out. I had four and all were setup with a remote oil filter. I used a canister type and located them on a bracket on the inner fender on the right side opposite the steering mechanism.
