What is one of them?

It has never had any. And I was fed up picking gravel out of the casting.

Was hoping to get the floor ready today but spent the time remaking the exhaust for the van. That was a fight.

So I thought I would post up some pictures of the remote repositioned oil filter. The idea being to filter the oil before the pump to hopefully kerp the pump in good condition if there were any gearbox issues.
This was done in the early 90s and the engine has been in 3 Hillclimb cars.

What does the pipe work look like on the front of the block? Both blanked off or linked together without the filter?

Basically it looks standard. Standard metal pipe across the block but into a housing that does not have a filter attachment.

Sorry no pics yet.
