Does anyone know where to get a remote oil filter adapter? I can't find anything for a m26x1.5 filter. The NAPA Gold 1809 filters I use hit the front drive shaft and get dented, worried it might rip it open.

I first read this and thought it would be a simple 20 second google search and I would have a dozen sites... Yeah no. You weren't kidding.

That said, I did find this:

Seems you aren't the only one with that issue. Yet they seem to be the only company making adapters. Of course they don't list a price, but someone estimated around $100, but I have absolutely no concrete information in that regard.

Hope this helps though, or at least guides you on the right path. I'll keep looking...

You are using a filter that is too tall.

I've been able to buy OEM oil filters for the gas burners... maybe you can do the same for the diesel.

Going to check them out! Thanks for the help!

In the US I can only find tall oil filters. I'd rather just buy the NAPA one in the US vs some brand I've never heard of and pay 50.00 for it. Think I might add in an oil cooler too.

Does anyone know of any other places that might have this? WG Sourcing never picked up or got back to me and I haven't had much luck looking elsewhere.

I think you’re lookimg for something that doesn’t exist. Shouldn’t be too hard to make though.

I think you are right. Might buy a M22 and drill it out for a M26 and retap, then buy a M22x1.5 to M26x1.5 male to male adapter for the relocation mount or just find a good M22 filter.

Still think you'd be better off just using the correct filter.

The other thing you could do is replace the filter base with one of the upward facing ones.
