This is what I am trying to do...and nothing is ever simple.
Install a transmission filter.
I was trying to install a simple transmission filter...as seen on dieselsite.com. Problem is I have the engine batteries where the instructions state to mount it and there is no where else to mount given the hose length provided.
I have been to a metal fab shop that sent me to a gear manufaturing shop that sent me to a hydrolic shop that sent me to a oil parts shop...followed by a dead end.
Choice 1: Go back to the gear manufacturing shop and have the manufacture a 3/4" pipe male to 1/2" inverted flair female with a 90 degree bend. This would be low profile and allow me to mount next to the battery. They said it would cost $100-$150 each to produce, which would require two.
Choice 2: Order from the eaton manufacturing the parts that were used to make the hose diesel site used in the kit. The down side is that I would have to take it to a hydrolic shop and have them crimp the pieces together with a machine at additional cost. $130 in parts alone to create two 5' hoses. I would then place the unit on the opposite side frame, over the transmission, coolant lines and gas lines and infront of the Amsoil Oil filtration system. Essentially I would not use the 3' hose provided and go to a 6' with the option of cutting it to 5'. This would also create resistance in the line due to doubling the length.

Choice 3: mount it 1" from the exhaust pipe. BTW. the return transmission oil runs 1" along side the exhaust pipe before entering the transmission. A flowing column may be one thing, a filter canister with anything but linear flow may be another issue entirely.
Choice 4: do nothing.
I have a compressor that prevents me mounting it behind the Atlas transfer case.
Love any input on what other people have done.
