    B 7.3s are easy to tap into, right above the spin on oil filter is 1/4 npt plug. Pull it out and screw in a hydraulic hose leading to the filter. It might be more tricky to find a spot to put it as they are pretty big. I returned mine through the plastic oil filler cap but to do it better pull off valve cover and tap it in there.

    I think there is a spot for a return down near the top of the oil pan in the side of the block. I did some research last night.

    It would be cool to see a 'before' and 'after' picture of used oil with the addition of a bypass filter. I think it would be a good selling point to people. Naturally, people will be putting clean oil in with their new filter, though.

    Google fs2500, they have a demonstration that is pretty impressive, they put a bunch of soot in oil then filter it for a few minutes and totally clean it up....

    My buddy put a by-pass filter on his 6.4(ford) and after a 1k it was the cleanist diesel oil I'd ever seen. I should look into doing it myself I think.

    I'm interested for sure. I've never bought off of e-bay before though. I'll probably have to pay through the nose locally.
