Several suggest to use #10 lines from the Trans-Dapt block adapter to the spin-on filter adapter...however...both adapters are 1/2" NPT which is smaller than #10AN lines.
So, the oil will be squeezed down for the 1/2" NPT.
Any problems with that or, any way around it or...just run it?

I have the same setup in my super comp dragster and have been running it for 3 years now with no problems. 1/2" npt to #10 hose.

Will do Sleekcrafter...thanks.

Question...are all adapters like this >meaning, 1/2 the hole is obstructed.
Also... the black 'block-off' adapter has a flat spot on it...what location must it be clocked?

Hammer,

You can do a little rubbing on that thing with a die grinder to clean/smooth it out to help the flow. Ran one of those for years.

S CP :D

For what it's worth, the cast ones are ot recomended for marine applications, as there is the chance the casting may break, I ran the cast on for many years, with no problems my self. At the very least, check the casting closely looking for casting flash. It a good piece of mind preventing any flashing particles from entering your motor.

The indexing of the bypass eliminator, it's notched as to not block oil flow, yet cover/block the bypass port.
