Bypass Filter Mount?

Anyone know of an "Off the shelf" filter mount that the Amsoil bypass filters will screw on to? I'm planning to purchase a mount and plumb it in with a 1/16" orifice in the outlet fitting to regulate flow, then just spin on an Amsoil filter. I don't want to have to spend a ton on the kit. I know I've seen someone else do this I just don't remember where.

As long as you define "off the shelf" as an Amsoil dealer, yes you can buy the OTS.

Otherwise, no. It's been tried, not only by myself but countless others over at the BITOG site. The problem is the thread fitting that the filter screws into: no one makes one, so having it made on a one-off basis = $$$.

The good news is that getting the Amsoil BMK-13 mount (maybe it's the BMK-11) isn't all that painful and it's definitely a one-time purchase. The one I have is on at least it's third vehicle, maybe it's fourth.

When a standard oil or fuel filter mount from Napa or Fleetfilter costs $25 plus shipping, $30 isn't unreasonable at all. Do it.

Why is the total kit so expensive when the mount is only $30? Does this mount already have the pressure control orifice? I'll be going that route then. I'll let you know here shortly. I mainly want to do the plumbing myself because I don't like the filter caps and exposed hoses. I'd rather build stainless lines so they'll work as a secondary oil cooler, and be problem free.

Yes, the mount has the (.03"?) orifice, at least mine does.

I also put my oil bypass together myself, using SS braided lines from Summit Racing and Oilguard oil filter and oil filler caps. Now Amsoil has pretty much the same setup for the 6.0.

I put my mount under the driver side frame on the outside. I currently have the EaPB-110 oil bypass filters. It's about 18", it's a big filter!

Good luck.

I'm on that then, I'm hoping it's a larger orifice than 1/32" (.03") though. That doesn't seem like a whole lot of flow. Thanks to you guys for pointing this out to me. I would've been cutting threads on the lathe here shortly if I hadn't known I could get this part for so cheap.
