    Default ford oil adapter

    This is a 460 block. Does this oil filter threaded thing come out of the block or do some not come out? Don't get me wrong I'm ready to throw a pipe wrench on it!! I want to put a adapter on my block to get more room for mech fuel pump. The one I bought needs threads to be removed. If it comes out I'm good if not I need another type adapter. Thanks

    Something doesn't seem 100% right with the adaptor you have. Most of the ones I have seen use a special piece that threads on like a filter to that piece.



    To answer your question, yes it will come out.

    As GN7 said, it does come out. Look at the threads on your remote filter kit, that thread into the block in place of the filter adapter and make sure which way the threads go. I believe they are standard, but best to make sure first.

    The picture GN7 posted shows the block with the oil filter adapter removed.

    If you damage the original and later decide to go back, you can get the Oil Filter adapter thru NAPA.

    Its almost impossible to keep up with the changes that Detroit does. The hex adaptor that came with your 90* adaptor looks for a filter mount except for the internal threads for the thru bolt. But you could remove it with a socket. Then when they went to the type without the hex, they made the inside of the piece hex'd and you could remove it with a large hex wrench.

    I like the type that threads ONTO the existing piece because the internal size of the original block adaptor is the smallest inside dimension, not the adaptor bolt. That type was common back on SBFs, and they probably didn't need that much size anyway. But with a BBF, I think I would prefer one that had the full bore size of the original block adaptor.

    The male-to-male oil fiter adapters that came on the 1968-1978 385 Series engines can be removed from the engine block with an internal pipe wrench. As an alternative, you may also try some radius-jawed Vise Grips on the larger OD shoulder that is sticking out fo the block.

    Note: THE OEM filter adapters that came from the factory are 1/2-inch smooth bore ID. The ones available today usually have an internal 7/16" hex that can be a oiling restiction in some applications. (The male-to-male adaptor that gn7 posted has a 1/2-inch hex ID, not the more common 7/16".)

    What you have there is a dime-a-dozen, OEM F250 or E250 oil filter adapter. The large, male-to-female threaded filter adapter in the picture screws directly into the block in place of the male-to-male adapter that you still need to remove. Then, the hollow bolt is passed through the adapter and into the female thread ID of the male-to-female adapter that you will have just screwed into the block.

    NOTE: The passages on the OEM adapter might be restrictive in your upper rpm application and you should consider enlarging its passages or at least blending its intesecting passages and entries/exits.
