Oil Flow Direction Through Filter Canister

Hi all,

Does anyone know which way the oil flows through the filter canister? Is it the green arrow or the yellow arrow?

Thanks,
Crin

On some canisters, there's an embossed INLET and OUTLET designating correct setup.

Joe, inlet and outlet markings on the Purolator L-8 filters doesn't help much as they are entirely symmetrical end for end. Easiest way IMO to determine oil flow is to just tickle the starter motor a few times and note the direction of flow.

Just guessing, the oil line assembly is from a 1935-39 senior 8-cylinder?

Here is a bit on the flow from the 36-7 SM and has virtually the same wording in the 38-9 manual.
