Oil filter stud

Post #1 by Turbo_B » Tue Apr 10, 2012 5:53 am

Does the oil filter stud screw or press into the block?

Screws into block. Are you needing to remove?

I am adding a sandwich adapter for an oil cooler, but the adapter puts the filter into the brake distribution block. So I am looking to fit a 90 degree filter adapter to the block and then the sandwich for the oil cooler between the 90 degree and the filter.

Long story short, I want to remove the stock oil filter stud.

Figured I should ask before I start!

Thanks for the help!

The 90° adaptor should screw onto the stock stud.

In my perpetual quest to be cheap, I found a 5.0L that uses a FL1A on a 90 degree adapter. But that stock 5.0L adapter screws into the block and not the stud.

:) Hi TurboB.What you might try,is to use two nuts on the stud.Tighten them together, and then screw the stud out by putting your wrench on the REAR nut.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.

Thanks for the advice. I read somewhere that the filter stud was pressed in, didn't want to remove something that I needed a press to reinstall!

The filter " stud" should be a 1/2" pipe nipple. I have not pulled the one on the engine but that is what is in my remote filter mount. I would try an easy out tool of the correct size as nuts that fit a 3/4-13 npt thread may be difficult to find.Also if you need a longer one a 1/2" pipe nipple of the correct length should work. A plumbing shop should be able to make one at any length you require. Pipe threads are a taper thread so they will seal. I could be wrong, so be careful, maybe purchase a 1/2" pipe fitting to thread on and check.

The Nipple is NOT Pipe Thread , it is threaded in , NOT pressed , Old style had a hex on it that you could use a socket and impact on , new has an internal 7/16 Allen to tighten and remove , many of the newer OEM have no provision for grabbing a hold , but if you do destroy it , most Ford dealers stock the replacement and its around 8 bucks
Falcon 6's, FE's I Like them both , Sold all My 6 cyl stuff ( for now at least ) glad to pass along some tips though

I went out and looked at my 2 1975 blocks. It is not pipe thread, it is 3/4 - 16 bolt thread ( 3/4 NF ). There is no provision for removing either one- no nut or allen flats. So you could use 2 3/4 nf jam nuts or an easy out on mine. A jam nut is a 1/2 tall nut, there is not enough threads for 2 full size nuts. Sorry for the misinformation earlier.

If you don't care about the condition it's in after you remove it, a pair of Vise-Grips makes a dandy removal tool :lol:

i use vise -grip pliers and junk the whole maryann and then get the ford adapter from a 460, that has the cooler ,lines, fittings, and adapter all at once. its a very nice setup and i can swing the filter into any angle i like, especially a lowered angle to keep the filter full after shut-of.
a long love affair with the 300 six.
my lastest and final fling is a fresh 300 in an 88 ford f350 dually 4X flatbed

Or cut a slot across the stud. Then insert a thin piece of metal and spin it out. A little thread clean up and it's usable again.
