Filter bases

I am dumping my ADII and just want to use the filters with my Fuelab. I have replacements I want to reuse and the filter specs are better than any of the other setups I see people putting together with the Baldwin filters. Anyway the ADII Donaldson filters have 2 different spin on thread sizes which is where the issue lies. The P550550 Water Separator uses a 3/4-16 spin on thread. All kinds of nice billet and anodized filter bases for them. The P551315 Fuel filter (3 micron) uses a 7/8-14 spin on thread. Problem is the only base I seem able to find for this is the FB1311 Baldwin base which is just plain FUGLY.

So mu question to you all is does anyone know of any alternatives to the 7/8-14 FB1311 base that I can use? It would be really nice if I could use matching bases but that may be impossible.

Have you looked at any of the web sites that supply parts for "hot rods"? May have some billet stuff there.

The BF1311 has a 1"-14 stud for the filter, the inlet and outlet are 7/8-14. I went with the wix 24770, they are pretty ugly also.

If you have to buy an ugly one, sooner or later or much later I will get around to making my filter heads and can make one for you application.

Ok, I picked up a couple of cheap bases from Summit. Crap I just noticed I ordered the wrong ones. The ones I ordered are in/out on the left side. Just re-ordered the right ones. IN/out 1/2 NPT with 3/4-16 filter thread. The filter thread is a screw in nipple so I will get a 7/8-14 nipple cut to whatever the head is to adapt it.
