2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 AMSOIL BMK-13 Installation

Rough measurements revealed the engine compartment of this 2004 Silverado was just too cramped to cleanly fit the BMK- 13 filter mount with EaO-15 and EaBP-90 Filters. I located a suitable vertical underbody “lip”, inside the frame on the dri- ver’s side, back by the ABS EBCM/Hydraulic manifold (see photos). Before ordering the kit I pre-measured, and figured about a five-foot hose run from the spin-on filter adaptor to the chosen filter mount location and ordered extra hose. I used a BK-11 90-degree fitting kit for the hose to spin-on filter adaptor connection (see photos). I ended up using about 4′ 8″ of hose for each line, so eight feet might do the job with a little tighter routing.
