LML Filter Relocate Kit.....

I may or may not post up my whole install. There are a few threads here already plus all the youtube videos.

Just wanted to let you guys know Western Diesel has upgraded the bracket to brushed stainless steel, and added as nice stiffener to it as well.



The kit no longer comes with molded hoses, which is a drag.

I'll post up my work-around for that when I get it all together which may not be for a few weeks...

I need to get my car together for the CHRR next weekend....

Like the stiffener. I made up across brace for mine. Also didn't get molded hoses. Got some hoses from Summit.

Since the kit no longer comes with the molded 180 degree bend hoses, my buddy made me some aluminum 1/2" heavy wall, barbed, 180 bends to route the hoses over the the relocated filter head...

Easy-Peasy....

Cool. Nice to have buddy that can make stuff. The Blue hoses from Summit will bend without kink,just not as tight as your aluminum bend.

man, i wish i had a set of those when i did my install. i found some similar things online from home beer brewing suppliers but the cost on food grade stuff was like half of the cost of the relocation kit just in those 2 bent tubes. I would really like to see something like this included in the kit. From talking to them, it was hinted at that something like this might be in the works as a solution to the hose issue. I would have paid more for the kit to include these though.

I wouldn't mind seeing another write up on this, The first one was good but i think more exposure to this kit would make a lot of owners lives better. Im honestly surprised no one had made this kit years ago. Such a simple solution to a frustrating problem.
