DamnKids Motorsports Filter Housing

Ok guys were asking so I took some more detailed pics of my filter housing for my WVO filtration setup.

Here it is, pictures are pretty self explanatory...



Top of the housing, machined aluminum:








Here's the main housing, 4" stainless pipe with a solid machined block of stainless welded on top, NPT fittings top and bottom for in and out. Holds a trade 4 bag filter.







Bag installed:



Here's the notch machined out of the top to go over the NPT fitting...



All buttoned up:

Cool. Thanks for posting those up. I was really curious about the inside. You are just letting the bag expand against the 4" tube without an inner/outer setup. I was wondering about that. Seems that would restrict the oil flow through the bag. What kind of flow rate are you able to get at what PSI? Your friend does nice work.

Haha, you're good! I am trying to set something up right now so it doesn't do this! We didn't think about this when we made it. It is a problem though and I will let you know what I come up with to fix it.

Wow, this an old post, that I am now resurrecting...

So I've moved three times in the last two years... got laid off, trying some new business adventures, had some problems with the truck, had some problems fixed, and now smarter than ever with dem dar diesels! haha.

I've been out of the WVO loop for a while, but wanted to get back going again since I've got so much free time now hehe.

I picked up smoe 6" SS tubing to replace my 4" on the housing now. I plan on just cutting off the 4" housing and welding on the new 6". The last few times I used this setup I was having major issues with the bag blowing down into the filter housing and plugging up the NPT "exit" fitting on the housing. This caused some major strain on my northern tool pump, as the exit piping on the pump was too hot to even touch by hand! Yet its still going strong with no leaks! Hurray for that NT pump!

Anyways, the system is apart, the 6" piping is laying next to the 4" housing and hopefully sooner than later I'll get it all rigged up. I'll keep you guys posted, and I'll be sure to get pics up!


So what else have I missed out on in the last year? I see Clay is still here helping everyone out... I would have probably pulled my hair out by now... Attaboy for Clay!
