Remote oil filter

Has anyone installed a remote oil filter kit on a Cummins ISB6.7 ?

I did a first oil change on my 2020 Tiffin RED340 and getting to the filter was very tough! The filter is mounted high between the engine and frame rail and has several hoses and stuff under the filter. Had to drill a hole in the filter to drain before removing otherwise would have had oil dumping everywhere.

No remote filter but here are my procedures, my oil filter is similarly positioned. First, break the filter loose so you know you will be able to remove it but do not unscrew it to the point you have oil running out. I ground the handle end of an old chain saw file to a sharp point and use it to puncture the filter for draining. You can use those hoses or wites to hold a small funnel to direct the oil from the filter into your drain pan. After the oil stops dripping, install the new filter. I slways prefill mine.

Yep, definitely broke it loose before drilling a drain hole!

David.....PacBrake makes several remote oil filter kits for the ISB engine. I would see if they have something that fits yours.
