Bypass Filter Question

I have an Amsoil BMK-21 bypass system and was wondering if any non amsoil filters would work on it and what is the thread pitch on the base? It would be nice to be able to buy a similar filter at NAPA because I am within a mile of one and it would be cheaper. It wouldn't even have to filter down to the 1 or 2 microns the amsoil one does.

IIRC it is a 1-16 thread but I am not aware of any cheaper filters that will fit on the head. If you want a more economical bypass look at the FG FL777 or Baldwin B164. Both are 1-4 microns nominal....

Re: Bypass Filter Question

The problem is I already have the Amsoil unit mounted and Id rather not change to a different one. I though I had read of someone putting a different filter on the amsoil unit.

I know perma-cool used to make a 2 micron (at God knows what efficiency) bypass that would fit but I think it was discontinued....

Re: Bypass Filter Question

maybe this belongs here not sure...im looking at the amsoil bypass kit for my 6.0, but it shows that it gets mounted right where my coolant filter goes, anyone have the same problem, or am i missing something?

You don't have to mount it there. I mounted mine on the frame near the transmission cross-member because I also have a coolant filter. If it wasn't raining Id take a picture.

Yeah they do and I made one myself and it looked way to cluttered under the hood. I then moved mine down to the frame. Ill try and get some pictures later.

Re: Bypass Filter Question

Here you can see how I mounted mine. I tapped the piece of steel so its pretty strong.
