R&L Engines Flathead remote oil filter kit comes with everything (including comprehensive instructions) to convert your flathead into a full flow oil set-up. The kit comes with a high quality no bypass oil filter, ensuring no unfiltered oil passes through your engine. We use this system on all our custom flatheads. We can provide the kit or perform the conversion for you.
