I want to install my new oil cooler kit tomorrow but don't want to loose all the oil in the engine as I only changed it (and the filter) about 800 miles ago. Anyone on here know how much oil will be lost if I just screw the filter off and put the sanwich plate & filter back on? Does the oil level (when full on the dip stick) come up to the filter port level on the block or is it lower?

No the oil level is below the filter height. You will only lose what is in the filter, and a small amount from the oil galley.

Thanks NISFAN.

I broke off the oil filter male thread when tightening up the sandwich plate. What do I do.....?

Am I going to need a new oil pump? :swear:
