Also, I'm pretty sure that the oil fill tube is supposed to be engine color.

West's photo shows the original first version of the plumbing which turned out to be an issue on some engines. Unknown would be which filter canister is present because they did try some changes there before deciding to reroute the plumbing. If there have been no problems with noisy lifters by now a canister change either fixed the issue or it is one of the unaffected engines. At any rate there would appear to be no reason to change anything at this late date.

On the engine having a "split flow" I am still unsure of what that means. If it means you have the direct pigtail going to the lifter gallery port and a filter in parallel also dumping into the port then that should take care of any noisy lifter issues but with essentially the same pressure on both sides of the filter I would wonder exactly how much flow is going thru the filter. If my understanding of the plumbing is wrong then I would need a photo or a drawing of your plumbing to offer any suggestions other than to consider following the factory diagram that was posted earlier. That diagram shows the final routing after several other attempts to solve the oil flow issue and lasted almost unchanged thru 54.

West,
Thank you for the photo. I'm trying to educate myself on the plumbing issues.
Now I can compare the original vs. the "fix".

Also, thanks for the tip on the tube color.

Howard, again thank you for the input!
Best,
Steve

Yes, that was my thinking as to how much really would be able to actually flow through the filter. Unless a partial direct flow partial restriction? I used to have for many years the flatter bottom filter canister which we decided a few years ago was the wrong canister. I had a bit noisy lifters. Just running a straight shot the past few years seems to have partially fixed the issue. So yes may just do parallel and still change the oil every few hundred miles. If not much running through the filter it would be there mainly for authenticity? My worry is after all the discussions over the past years is the canister gets clogged up. I see the spring loaded relief at the top but it takes a fair amount of pressure to by pass in case the filter should become clogged.

I am still getting invalid code? Need to preview first then post?
