its not pretty and it took some sledge hammering, but it is in and secrue, and the hood even closes. it is a tight fit. i put a fan in front of the rad, because theres no longer room for one between the rad and engine. i also put an oil cooler right in front of the radiator, next to the fan. and i got a kit to use the biggest filter made for automotive. its like an f1 or something, in motorcraft numbers. its a ford f350 filter, like a big soup can. it all holds water and oil for now. its dark so i'll post pics tomorrow, im just surprised it all fit. you can never have too many cooling options. pics when theres lite:headbang:

If that's the filter base I've seen before, that takes a std Pennzoil PZ1, Fram PH8A, Wix 41515 or NAPA 1515 filter. Yup, Ford used them for about 40 years. Popular on remote filter conversions for air-cooled VDubs, too. They hold almost a quart of oii, and you can buy them anywhere

I would recomend against the larger filter though. those filters are designed to be mounted vertically. I had problems with them on my toyota. ended up losing a bearing due to to manny "dry" starts. they let oil drain back to the pan and then have to be filled when the car starts again. try the toyota filter 1068 napa or wix. it has a drain back valve inside.

Antidrainback is the way to go
