ok... so the explorer(96) had this oil cooler on it, or whatever you want to call it. id like to just get rid of this and run a filter on the block like you typically would. my problem is that on the block, instead of having the center part w. threads on it to screw the filter on, its threaded on the inside, to screw a bolt into that holds this oil cooler deal on. i dont think the cooler will work w. the mustang, i dont think the clearance is there... so what can i do?  sorry i dont have a pic, if its needed i can get one

Do you mean......



I think the adapter nipple screwed to the block can be removed and replaced with the one for the FL1A filter.
