Hey guys on the LS1 where does the oil fill the filter. From the center then to the outside? Or from the out side to the center?
Today I learned a "don't do that to an LS1". I installed my oil pan with silicone and reused the old gasket which was rubber, no big deal. But when I looked up into he orifice for the oil filter I saw to much silicone in it and remove the silicone. Then remembering that there are two holes for the filters supply and return if the hole I removed the silicone from was the return then if the supply side has silicone in it the filter would catch it. But the hole I could not get to is the return side so it could break off and go into an oil galley. Long story short the pan is now removed and I ordered a new gasket. I'm staying away from the silicone for fear of engine damage.Just curious....what are you trying to do ?:cheers:
