351 oil bypass

Here is one for the books. I have a 1992 Ford Van with a 351 Windsor. 110K on it look and runs great...... But when I change the oil the filter is dry, that's right no oil in it. I have tried a couple of different filters and have gotten away from Fram (bad news). I have plent of oil pressure. I just changed today and dry again. This time I forced compresed air up both holes. Had a hard time sealing the return, but got air up the feed in the middle. I will pull the filter in a day or two to see if that worked. The center has a big hex in it, but I dont know what will fall out if I take it out. Is there an internal bypass ?? I have been changing my oiul often to compensate.

Help !!!

Re: 351 oil bypass

Have you tried starting it without filter ??? Don't do this on your driveway...

Re: 351 oil bypass

No, sounds messy, but it might just prove if oil is flowing, were does the oil come from, the sides right, output is ther center. When I put compressed air up the center, I didn't get much air in, maybe the inpuy is clogged

Re: 351 oil bypass

I doubt you would be able to blow air through oil pump? Esp if its in good nick...Are you using Z9 style filter ?
