2001 Dodge Cummins 5.9L Turbo Diesel By-Pass Filter Installation

December 15th, 2010 · No Comments

I used the BMK-11 system, which now gives this vehicle the flexibility of mounting the by-pass filter under the hood in a very serviceable place. I looked at the install of AMSOIL Dealers Wayne Owen & Russell Day and modified it a bit from their design. My bracket bolts right on top of the stock battery hold down. By angling my bracket, I could use the same bracket for all the EaBP filters without having to custom tailor each one. The owner was changing the oil in this Cummins every 3,000 miles. We are now going to sample oil at 15,000-mile intervals and keep the oil changes to a minimum. This truck is using AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Oil. Capacity increased to 14 quarts, up from 12.
• Flush with AMSOIL Engine Flush and drain.
• Mount custom bracket right over the top of the stock battery hold down. Simply undo the bolts and run them through both brackets.
• Replace engine oil fill cap with aluminum billet BK-1302
• Utilize 90-degree JIC fitting 1/8″ NPT to male JIC on top of fill cap.
• Install BP-241 on top of the stock oil filter adaptor; this will be your feed line for oil going to the BMK-11. There is already a port there.
• Mount BMK-11 and pre-fill both by-pass and full-flow filters with oil according to instructions.
• Fill with appropriate AMSOIL and check for proper flow and pressure.
