PurePower filters!

I have ordered a remote PurePower oil filter for my next oil change .. it should be here in a week or so



It comes with a take off block you attach to the original oil filter location and a remote filter I will attach to the frame in a more accecable location (the actual oil lines you buy localy made to the length you need)... anyone who has tried to change an oil filter on a Hemi, on a Commander, knows why I choose this

The filter is cleanable with soap and water and is designed to last the life span of the enigne .. futre oil changes require oil ONLY

I'll post some pics of the install when it gets here

Jeep5253 has you http://www.gopurepower.com ... I bought it directly from thier site ... I have the remote mount modle ..... the billet aluminium filter take off is not on thier site yet so you have to ask for it.

The lLines are not included of course ... I had a hydraulic shop make up 1/2" 2 wire lines for me .. a little over kill but they look factory and they were not too expensive.


You can also get lines you can cut to fit from the local speed shop ... but I didn;t want the fancy anodized fittings and braided SS lines.

I forget the exact price, check out the site for details .. I pay a little more here for shipping, exchange and brokerage anwyay .. the hydrulic lines were like $35 extra ... the fittings are the latest 'O' Ring Boss fittings .... I choses swivles on both ends to make it easier.

I still don't have it mounted yet ... I had the lines made up too long and hand to get one end redone on both lines ... I will post the install when I do it.

Does that require their specific brand oil? Synthetic? Looks interesting.

I wll definatley post some pics ... I may have time tomorow afternoon if I get back soon enough to do the instal

The filter can filter any oil at all ... but for the Hemi I'l be using 5W20 synthetic.

If I trade my XK for a newer modle I will bring the filter with me, it's easy to change the vehicle back to regular ..

.. and the Pure Power set up can be adapted to any other vehicle with just a new take off or it can actualy just have a small insert unthreaded and replaced to fit it to the newer Commanders metric threads for example

I finaly have my PurePower on and running ... I put in on, on Wednesday (it's Sunday today) and took some pics.

Here's all the stuff ready to go, the Filter itself two custom fitted hydraulic lines and the take off that replaces the stock filter on the engine ... One line is 10" long the other is 15" long, the hydrulaic lines are very heavy and not that flexible .. it took me a second try at the length to get them just right



First I took off the stock filter and spun on the take off plate, no special task is involved it just spins on like a regular oil filter, Don't over tighten it just needs to be snug.



I also removed the Jeep's plastic drip tray (two bolts) since it's in the way of tightening the oil lines and won't be needed anymore .. I saved it incase I want to swap back to stock configuration if I sell the Jeep.



Next put the lines on and tighten, the 'O' Ring boss lines also do not ned to be over tightened, just til they stop is plenty.



Next post for more.

Now to mount the oil filter itself .. it's tight under there not much space .. I choose a spot on the frame near and tucked in behind the rad, there's JUST enough space for the lines on each side nd they are well protected by the frame rail.

To make sure the filter was not hanging down to low I cut off the top of the mouting tab, I think two 5/16" bolts will be plenty to keep in in place. Note tape on filter ports to keep metal shavings OUT.




I drilled two holes in the frame and temporarily put two nuts and bolts in with a stack of washers ... I then welded the nuts to the frame, the way I am mounting it there will be no way to access thoes nuts with a wrench in case I ever want to remove it.

I also gave them two good coats of black automotive paint to keep rust at bay (sorry about the poor pic quality it was getting dark at this point)



Then I bolted the filter on and put the lines on! This was not as easy as it seemed I had to slot the holes in the filters mouting tab several times to get the clearance JUST right .. I did NOT want the lines touching anything to avoid wearing through.

You can see how the bolts are over to one side on the filters mouting tab .. no big deal but I just didn't want to grind off the nuts and drill the frame again and re-weld them, I figured slotting the holes was less invasive



there was one spot where an A/C line was touching my oil line



so I tucked the oil line in behind it and made a spacer out of aluminum to keep the line away.

Good job Mr Safecracker. What is the tube in the 4th picture under post #8? I like the idea of the remote filter. I have remote coolant and transmission filters on my old motor home. They are mounted up front with bypass valves for changing them. I also have sensors mounted in tees in the lines for monitoring the temperature of the fluids.
