Tech Question

Sean Bolock, San Marcos, TX, 1971 Dodge Demon 340

For the 90 degree (adjustable) swivel oil filter adapterthat clears the exhaust pipe, what are the thicknesses of the three gasketsthat go there, 1 on between the bolt and the adapter, 1 large internal oneand 1 small internal one.


The large OD one is about 1/8″, the one under the bolt head is very thin,basically a just fibre washer, and the “internal” one is thick, soft, andcompressible – probably, from memory, about 3/16″ – all this one does isprevent dirty oil from bypassing the filter.
