Remote filter heads are cheap. I’d run as large of a diesel filter as you have room for, and while you’re at it I’d run an Amsoil by-pass filter.

What’s a “Taig…”?

The original filter has served these engines well but there are better alternatives these days that will prolong oil and in turn engine life. Running a by-pass filter system is a big plus. Does anyone here have one on their Benz yet?

Nice.
These were cut out on a abrasive water-jet. Neat machine. It'll cut anything from aluminum and steel to glass and stone.

I was poking around the Amsoil website this morning. They make a really nice remote dual-filter set-up that has both a full-flow and by-pass filter system in the same mount. That would make for an awesome filter system for a 616/617.

Oil filter housing

I am very interested in your housing adapter, and I also am interested in getting some things cut out on the flow jet if you would be willing to do so I need to make a rear sump oil pan for a 5 cylinder and need a set of pan rails cut if possible thank you much

Cool!

I think there was somebody looking to put a 616 into a Ford Model A and needed an adapter like that.

The VW Rabbit diesel oil filter would probably be a good choice. It's available and has the same 3/4"-16 threads (same as ford FL1A) as many of the common remote filter brackets.

For an oil filter a Fram PH8A equivalent would be a good choice. Its a very common filter used for many years and many different engines. There are also "race" type filters in this model with high pressure cases and stronger filter media.

I think the FL1A and PH8A are the same thing... At least they are to my Ford Ranger

You could also make one that fits the engines in 114/115 chassis to get the filter up top like where it ought to be

... so the oil can drain out after shutdown and starve the engine for that much longer during the next startup?

I'd mount it vertically (w/ the opening 'up') so that the filter couldnt drainback (even tho the fram allegedy has an antidrainback valve)

Of equal importance is the ability to fill it up w/ oil and screw it on when changing the oil.

What concerns me is the hoses, I know they can handle the pressure, but can they handle the vibrations @ idle from ol shakey under the hood?? I'd want some sort of intermediate bracket or stabilizer on the hoses.
