Anyone here plumb their bypass filter with hard line?

I have a small, annoying leak on one of my soft lines.

Sure - - -just use a long enough piece of tubing to put a 360 degree vibration loop in both lines. Don't use hard lines if the filter housing is mounted to the body instead of the engine.

Wonder what a grease gun hose is temp rated for? It’d be 1/8 NPT on both ends and I have the swivel fitting for the connection to the pressure side on the block.

I'd suggest getting a hydraulic shop to assemble a piece of "single braid" hydraulic hose with the proper fittings. It's temp and pressure rated far above anything engine oil will ever see. a #4 line will have a 1/4" ID which will have plenty of flow for a bypass filter. Most single braid line has a working pressure rating of around 3K PSI.

You can get push-on fittings and hose rated for at least 100 psi at any good hydraulics shop and most parts stores. No hose clamps needed, so easy to build whatever lines you need.

I plumbed a 1958 235 oil filter with hard lines once. I thought it looked and performed well. Not exactly "stock" looking but the lines are so low in the engine compartment that nearly nobody including myself noticed the "mod".

Looks good, Paul. Is that 5/16 line?

I think it was 5/16. It plumbed up to the engine and filter without too many adapters, it was pretty clean.

After dealing with hose fitting leaks, I plumbed mine with Ni-Cu tubing and am happy with the results. I didn’t install any vibration loops and my reasoning was that the filter is hard mounted to the engine so there should be minimum flex in the tubing and the tubing is bent in multiple planes that should absorb any expansion and contraction issues. I did that over a year ago and so far no leaks.

I went with the push lock style for today just to make it quick. Probably circle back and do hard lines later.
