Q & A

What's in the Box

This adaptor converts that ugly canister oil filter to a spin-on. It mounts in the original location and lays the filter along the oil pan rail. Designed for 1955-58 Chrysler Hemi.

The FA1 places the filter in a horizontal position and allows for the starter to be placed on the passenger side.  It comes with the gasket and bolts.  In some cases it has been found the oil filter adapter block boss was milled shorter on some blocks so it may be necessary to use the
smaller oil filter.
