Oil fitler adapters

I have an old style 4-bolt chevy small block.

I want to run a spin on filter. I have tried 2 Mr Gasket adapters seen here:
http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

I can not get the gaskets to seat properly as it is leaking past the seal.

Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to something of a higher quality that I can run that will seal a little bit better? I am not sure why this stupid thing keeps leaking. I have put 3 o-rings in it and I am on the second adapter itself... this is stupid.

I think you left out that you said your system is making 80 psi at idle.

My motor is making 80 PSI at idle, the pressure should drop as the motor gets more broke-in

Use a Transdapt #1024... it has an actual shoulder to hold the seal. You have to run a Ford style filter though...

Good luck... I had a SB 327 that ran 50# at idle warmed up and could never get that thing to seal... The filter adaper leaked as well as the rear main. The old blocks always leak it is just part of the engine. I updated to an LT1 and all the modern seals and it doesn't leak a bit...

x2..

I had an oil cooler on the first 350 in my jeep and I couldn't get it to seal @45psi at idle. It would leak bad under high RPMs/70-80 PSI. I ended up removing the oil cooler.

It's not breaking the seal of the oil filter. It is blowing out the seal of the adapter to the block.
