I have a 2180 with a full flow case. One of the oil lines go to a CB racing four port oil filter base and one line returns to the block . My question is can i use the other two ports (marked in and out) to go to a small oil cooler? The oil filter base would have two out and two in . Thanks most posts on the site has a line going in and out then to the cooler in and out . I have found this could be a problem with flow?

The main purpose of the oil filter holder with FOUR ports is it just lets you run the hose out of whichever side you want, and/or put sensors in the extra holes.

The way to route a "full flow cooler" is generally first through the filter, THEN through the oil cooler.

If you need/ want a cooler, use this thermostat valve on the filter mount. Several manufacturers offer them, Setrab is one of the best IMO

I have seen other four port filter bases that will supply oil to the oil cooler and back thru the filter . But to your point that could be a restriction . Thank you

A 4 port will just pass the oil to the cooler and not force it through the filter

Ok, sure.
There is lots of oil cooler holders maybe you could have a part number or link to the one you are discussing.

Why couldn't you go, out from the pump to in at the filter adapter.
Out from the filter to in at the cooler.
Then, out from the cooler to in at the engine case and block the unused filter adapter ports.
Or use some of the blocked filter adapter ports for temp sensors and pressure sensors.

You could, just don't connect both cooler hoses to the filter base without a thermostat

Typically you want to run some sort of thermostat between the oil filter and oil cooler so the oil heats up properly

I am using cb racing 1734 spin on oil adapter. I have a -8 from the pump to the inlet side of the filter base and a -8 coming from the base to the motor in the relief plug area . On the outer side of the filter base is a in and out port that has a -8 line in a loop . I was wanting to use that loop line to put a cooler there but your ideas have me thinking!

I really think you need to post a pic. Because the way you described it, with the in and out ports connected, the oil is probably just running past the filter. It has four ports so you can choose the sides that work best for your arrangement, not because they intend all of them to be connected to a hose.

I have a line going in to a in port and a line out of a out port. Filter is full. I will use the diagram and just use two of the four ports and plug the other two! Thank you for your time.

Any idea what temperature these are made to open at? I didn't see anything on their site but maybe I missed it?
