Hi Folks,

is it possible that my Cadillac has 2 oil filter/cleaner :hmm:??? If so, where do I get this filter ??(see Attached Images)
A tube goes into the engine block and the other tube goes into the intake manifold.


Thanks for your help !!!


best regards
&
Rock on

wow I've never seen that before! My 69 caddy has the 472 and it only has 1 filter on the bottom front of the engine. None up top like that.

Either someone added that in after the fact (not sure why...) or they changed a lot between 69 and 73. Does your car have the originally intake manifold or some kind of aftermarket deal? either way you look at it, changing that filter will suck because it's facing straight up...you'd probably have to unbolt the mounting bracket and flip the thing upside down to change it out.

EDIT: Looking at it more, it does look aftermarket. Look at the inner fender/wheel well where it is bolted on. Looks like they pounded it down to get the bracket on it.
