Am thinking of getting a Kleenoil bypass filter on the 100series 1hz. The kit comes with all fittings, but where do you fit the return oil line fitting. Some options are modify sump or drill and tap into head,friend suggested that there should be a plug in the block somewhere that after market turbos use for lube return. Anybody know where this might be?
Cheers in advance

Hi , There should be a return plug in the side of the block somewhere.

if your main filter is in bypass then change the filter element
the waring light should have come on before the filter has or is in bypass
so I can't see the need to filter the bypass oil
or am I missing something

A bypass filter is an extra filter you install. I could try to explain it here however it would be easier for both of us if you checked out

I'm am a hydraulic service manager I do know about filtration
These filters are depth type filters (dunny roll) very old way of thinking.
Ref. FOS "depth filters can be classified as either absorbent or adsorbent, depending on the way they remove dirt" "Adsorbent filters may also remove desirable additives from the oil and for this reason are not often used in hydraulic systems."

They are made of any of the following cotton waste, wood pulp, wool yarn, paper or quartz's

had a look at the site, no mention of micron ratings in nominal or absolute let alone beta rating.

this type of filtration would only be used in hydraulic systems were the amount of oil to be cleaned cost more than the cost of (and down time) of changing the oil, after it has been contaminated.
