Oil Leak From filter 88 tbi 350

I have a slow leak out of my oil filter..

The motor is an 88 tbi 350.. When installed the motor in my Truck i pulled off the oil cooler part, and pulled a piece off of an old motor to replace it so the filter goes right up to the block.. (i dont know what to call that piece, its what the filter threads onto) .. i put a new gasket inbetweeen the piece and the block and tightend everything up.. but it leaks slow still.. any ideas.. I have trid two new filters, PH5 and PH13 and both leak..
Thanks, I gota get this fixed before MOAB!!

I do not quite understand what is leaking. So you pulled the oil cooler adaptor-about 3'' thick with the alum lines coming out. Then you installed the oil filter adaptor--small alum piece with the threads for the filter. Should not need a gasket. Then screwed the fiilter on. Were the gasket and O ring removed completely from when the cooler housing was removed?

if you removed cooler adapter and installed filter adapter then the filter seals against the blaock surface so inspect that surface for damage and also inspect the port just above filter in block it can leak and make it appear that filter is leaking

Make sure to "oil" the gasket before you install a new filter. Check (obviously) for any damage to the gaskets and make sure that the filter is flush all the way around.
