    Ouch-gctid393113

    Well, I finally got around to removing my remote oil filter lines ( they were leaking a little bit ) - talk about a painful experience. I think I am getting too old to be bilge diving.

    The main lines ( one to the oil cooler, and one to the filter adapter) came off easy, but I got rained out before I could get the oil cooler/adapter one off.

    One question. The filter adapter ( where the filter normally would be without the remote ) was fairly loose - I suspect it needs a new gasket - can I just use a gasket from another filter or is there some special gasket I need ?

    OBTW: my seawater pump belt was missing some rubber teeth, - not something that is visible unless you actually take it off and inspect it.

    I found a few teeth in my bilge a few years ago. Didn't know what they were, till my boat went DIW between Cypress and Sinclair. Then there were a lot of them, and the belt they came from.

    I had all but one of the tools I needed, and the belts. I needed a 15mm, not to be had. Floated for a few hours until I got to anchor depth, then tossed the hook. Some friends were a few hours behind us, so I asked them to bring me a 15mm. They arrived, two minutes later I was back in business.

    Having the right part with you doesn't always mean you are good to go.

    Good luck with the oil lines.

      If you go to napa autoparts they sell a remote filter adaptor gasket kit. I just purchased one last week. The gasket that was with it was an oring not a filter type gasket. There is also an internal gasket in the kit that you will need. . The kit is actually called the a remote oil cooler adaptor gasket kit. It cost $9-10. It was originally for the large v-8 gm trucks. I dont have rhe part # in front of me if you need it ill get it later

        Thanks David- I will just take the adaptor off and take it with me to NAPA - I have to go there to get the new lines anyway.

          I just had some really sweet lines made up at house of hose. Stainless braded they look cool. That and the tranny cooler lines

            I intend to do that very thing, meaning new stainless lines - as all of my remote lines started leaking on the filter end. However, I can't physically reach the connections underneath the motors. In the mean time I cut the fittings off and screwed in some male fittings to the filter base, then secured with hose clamps. Kinda sucks but I had no choice, other than maybe cutting bigger access holes from the inside....which I'd rather not do.

                  Mike and Dave......, FWIW and FYI: The Hayden Company offers a thermstatically controlled by-pass valve body for diverting oil to/from the oil cooler.

                  This controls just how much oil actually makes it to/from the oil cooler, since we don't want to over-cool the engine oil.

                  The balance of the oil continues to circulate through the oil filer.



                  There is also what Hayden calls their sandwich adapter.



                  Just a suggestion.

                    Yeah Bounty that is what I ended up doing - at your suggesting. One day I will put in new lines I suppose but it's working.

                      Well, I went to NAPA to get the 3 hoses redone and they said they could not do it - JIC fittings. They sent me off to another biz that makes up hoses.

                      This is gonna cost me.

                        Mike I may need to apologize and probably do. I think I lead you wrong on the gasket for the remote oil filter adaptor. I only relayed to info that napa gave me but upon removing my adaptor saw that it was in error.

                        This is probably what you will need.

                          NAPA could not do JIC????? Hmmm.

                          Stop by an air/oil hose supply company. They make up hoses all the time, and in both SAE and JIC fittings.

                            I tried the local custom hydraulic hose company - they wont do it either. Marine seems to scare them, some mumbling about stainless that didnt make any sense to me since I all need are a couple of brass 90's and brass fittings on the hoses.
