When you see the path the oil has to take it's a miracle the oil makes it as far as the rods!

I did not make my self clear. I am talking about drilling the block in the back and putting on a remote screw on filter.

No restriction and as big a line as possible; 3/8 in. OD absolute minimum, 1/2 in. better.

The I.D. works fine at .375", you don't really need anything larger, it just makes the pump work harder to move the oil!

The "new" holes end up being drilled/tapped for 3/8" NPT.

We've done few of these now, it's a nice setup! Staying with some braided lines also makes for a nice look!

Thanks, Gary in N.Y.

P.S. Here's a couple shots of the block machined at the rear!

LMAO. So, the larger ID makes the "pump work harder".

Huff, back to your original question. search the thread "engine seized after two miles"
Have a good read.
I think that if you dont put a restricter in the horizontal gallery, that the oil won't go through your filter. It will instead flow directly through the block.
A friend has advised on another forum that the restricter is a threaded piece of steel with a 5 mm hole through it. The engines I am referring to were Australian Bren Carriers. They were fitted with an oil cooler, and a bypass valve. The purpose of the bypass valve was to let cold oil circulate via the bypass, until it was thin enough to flow through the cooler The copper pipes to and from the cooler would at a guess be 7/16 (11 mm) I.D.
I hope that helps.

used 1/2 id hose and the horizontul passage between the fittings in post# 5 plugged solid mine's been like that for 10 000 miles so i guess it works, oh you can tap the passage 7/16 NF and use a short socket head set screw to plug don't tap all the way so the plug will "bottom" or lock use some kind of thread seal.

I have about 50 miles on a "new" 8BA using this setup. Seems to work well. Time will tell!

I'd say the grub screw was left in the block. This prevented AKY oil from getting to the bearings, EXcept the rear main. This is ooiled directly from the pump.
