If you're building a custom shovelhead, panhead, knucklehead, flathead, any one of those head motorcycles, the stock oil tanks on some of them had a filter built into it.
Well, now you just put that really cool round oil tank on there with no filter. Probably not the best plan of action, so you need to get one of these Filtro-Max and get it on there. It comes with a housing, available in black or polished aluminum. It also comes with this bracket included with the kit. It is weldable, if you want to attach it to your frame or wherever you decide you might want to put it, this will come in handy. Mounting hardware, it also comes with a couple of fittings-- post barbed fittings to attach the hoses. This is what it looks like assembled. It comes with the center portion for attaching the oil filter.
Small side is going to go in, oil filter is just going to thread right on there, just like on a modern-day motorcycle, like so. Can pretty much be mounted in any way that you choose. We also have these really cool front motor mount brackets. Once again, black or polished. This will fit on a big twin shovelhead, panhead, evolution. Two holes, it will sit on top of the frame where the motor mount is in the front, bolts will go through the frame, and into the bottom of this. It comes with a couple of longer Allen head bolts that you'll simply place in those two recessed holes and attach the housing to that. That's what that looks like.
The really cool thing about doing it this way is the filter's facing down. When you go to change your oil, the oil goes in the pan instead of all over your motorcycle. I know some of the modern Harley bikes, when you take the filter off, it goes everywhere. We also have this stainless steel bracket, which has a bolt pattern to go on the front motor mount of an ironhead. Technically, you could pretty much use this anywhere if you'd like. If this is-- you want to go ahead and replicate this bolt pattern somewhere on your bike with a couple of coked bums or whatever the case may be, bolts on like so.
Once again, either way, anywhere on the bike you want to put that, it will fit on an ironhead with no modifications, but could also be used on other models. We also have this nifty little bracket. These are both made out of stainless steel. If you want to paint them to match your frame that's cool. If you want to polish it, you could leave it just like this, it's not going to rust because it is stainless. These are pretty heavy-duty. This one is for if you have a belt drive, these two bolts will go into your crankcase. Then the Filtro-Max will bolt to that. One other thing worth noting on these filters, they are marked in and out.
Our return oil is going to go in, that way it gets filtered before it gets sent back to the tank. Return oil in, filtered oil out, back to the oil tank. That's really all there is to it. Fairly simple thing to do. Like I said, if your old shovelhead doesn't have an oil filter on it, it's definitely a good idea to have one on there. The Filtro-Max is a great solution for that. Thanks for watching guys. Get that oil filter on your old bike and go for a ride.
