LS Engine to an Oil Accumulator Adapter

This is an adapter to make plumbing in an oil accumulator possible on an LS based engine. A oil accumulator is supposed to have -10 lines plumbing it in but until now there was not a good way to get the -10 fitting on the engine.

The adapter mounts right above the oil filter and is threaded with an "O" ring sealed thread instead of a pipe thread. This way you don't have to worry about destroying threads when you need that 90 degree fitting to end up in a certain spot.


The adapter also is also taped for 1/8" pipe on the top side so you can run an oil pressure sending unit there.

Our adapter comes with every thing you need to adapt this up to your engine. The Adapter AND the -10 fitting and "O" ring. On all LS engines there is some thing either blocking off the port or it is being used for oil cooling lines on some trucks. Our adapter reuses the stock bolts and gasket and installation is very easy.

We have these in stock and ready to ship.

Call the shop to order 615-962-9135

Selling price is $49.99

These are such a clean alternative to running a remote oil filter, etc. Great idea.

I will be calling and placing an order.

If you want me to make you one up let me know. I have been thinking about setting these up on the CNC any ways. I think its a common problem that no one offers a good solution for.
These ones are just for the sensor/accumulator right? Did you make any with the ports for the sensor/accumulator/cooler?

Do you make these for water pumps on 6.0LS engines. I need a bolt on adapter for my water pump to an -AN fitting for rear mounted radiator.

Thanks.

Bigcountry,
We do make a thermostat housing with -16 an on it. It is built so the thermostat can be kept in place. I will try and get a picture up tomorrow.

Is your thermostat housing for routing the steam port when using a rear radiator?

The T-stat housing is a replacement unit built with -16 AN and still holds a OE thermostat.
The steam port is run from the cylinder head cross tube up to the radiator near the top.
I hope that answers your question. If not fire away.

I asked that question before doing some more research. Haven't got my engine home yet to see how the cooling is laid out. I've got some other questions I'll call with.
