Chrysler LH318 Industrial Engine Oil Filter Alternative
Many tech bulletins discuss the benefits of adding oil capacity to an industrial engine or a remote oil filter. Both larger filters and well as larger capacity oil systems are good. After all, cool oil is happy oil. But this bulletin provided by Foley Engines is different.
The Chrysler LH318 industrial engine has been around for a long time in many industrial applications. You can find them in forklifts, material handlers, marine applications and even wood chippers as well as other applications. The 318 Chrysler industrial engine is now so old and so common that people are swapping them back and forth into different applications.
One problem that occurs is that the Chrysler 318 exhaust manifolds vary quite a bit. Sometimes clearance is an issue. If you have swapped Chrysler 318 exhaust manifolds from one engine to another and can't get the stock oil filter to fit here is an idea. If the usual oil filter won't clear the exhaust manifold, try an oil filter from a 2.4L engine in a 1990 Toyota pickup. It will work.
