Updated coolant bypass filter with flow sight glass.

Just updated the coolant bypass filter today to include flow sight glass and actual "Y" fitting as opposed to "T" fitting at degas junction.

Couldn't say that it flowed better, but in some way it has to. Its nice to see the brilliant yellow coolant flowing and knowing that the filter isn't clogged or stopped up with just a glance instead of grabbing the hose to see if its hot.

I like the sight glass idea. Do you also have a Y-fitting at the heater hose? I do for that one for a regular T on the return. I didn't see it being very necessary to have a Y on the return line but I did prefer one on the feed hose off the heater hose to try and divert more fluid more often over a T-fitting. However, I agree with another poster on a thread of mine that it really doesn't matter with a pressurized system anyways. TomAto TomAHto.

I have to say the pic of the filter at 500 miles is dirty enough for me to definitely get a bypass filter! I'm looking at both coolant bypass filters and oil bypass filters. What brand system are you using?

I like your idea. Where did you find the inline sight glass like that? Your setup looks great!

Picked up my filter base and filters from a local Fleet truck supplier and the hoses from a local parker Racor hose shop...alll the hardware I got from The Home Depot (except the new stuff...was from McMaster Carr).. I don't have a "Y" fitting on the heater hose...but that will be next.

I also have a oil bypass set, CCV filter and Power Steering filter...if anyone would like to see them, they're on my albums on FTE.
