Question 6.0L oil filter location

thanks to search not allowing 3 letter words, i might be digging up an old topic, but i couldnt find the answer.

im not savvy on the 6.0's, and all the ones ive messed with were trucks. well today, was looking at out only ambulance with a 6.0L in it and i couldnt see the oil filter cap on top of the engine. made sure i was looking in the correct spot (about 10:30) in relation to the fuel filter as it is in the expedition and F350 with 6.0s. that spot looks to be open on the E450 ambulance. intercooler and and oil fill tube go right through where i was expecting the oil filter to be.


ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

There should be a little allen-key style plug in the end of the housing that will let you drain the filter housing and supply lines without making a big mess when you change that filter. If you don't drain the housing, it will spill about a quart or more of oil on you when you unscrew the housing.
