Turbo Oil Supply Screen Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I'm doing this right now and got everything off minus the 24mm in the block. I read back a page and some one stated if you put a small screw driver through and it goes in more then a inch, the filter has been removed already. Well mine went in 2 inches, so I'm putting it all back together until someone else says no that's wrong and I'll do it again hahaha. Not that hard of a job from the top with the right tools

The filter is a cylinder... A screw driver will always go through the middle

You got this far, just pull it out and have a look

Here is a pic

The mesh filter is around the inside of this fitting, it only filters the oil coming out the small holes in the middle

Hey guys was hoping someone could point me in the right direction with how to get mine off to check, thought I may as well seeing as how my turbo has failed and I need to look at replacing it anyway so thought I'd take the filter out etc. while I had it all apart but mine doesn't look like the one in the photo? I tried taking a few pics here: I think the piece on the far left is from my oil pressure gauge? But even beside that it looks quite a bit different.

You need to undo the fitting from the block, in your first photo. It's the one you can see connected to the line that runs upwards vertically. The filter is located inside this male to male adapter. All the rest of the stuff hanging off (oil pressure gauge sender, oil pressure switch all come off the fitting from the block which you need to take out. Just be careful getting it out though, that you don't over twist the banjo fitting and split the factory hard line...

Undo the oil line.

 

First post of the thread and the first picture is what you want.

 

It's under the intake manifold. 

 

Follow your oil line. 

 

Read the thread for all the details you need.

Hi everyone, going to resurrect this thread. Just purchased a BF Typhoon and have also bought a braided oil supply line kit, will be removing this filter as well. I have read a few times that the process is slightly more complicated in an F6 than it is in an XR6 Turbo. Is it just the oil cooler sandwich plate that's different? Is there anything else that I would specifically need to get or do to perform this on an F6?

 

Cheers guys

the difference is in the oil pressure sensor (that is actually for the stock oil pressure gauge) which you have to remove from the top of the oil supply line connector before you can get the connector out at all, so you can't put a socket on it, basically, but you have to hold it with two spanners.

Cheers Keith, so from what I understand without looking at this, where others use the deep socket and a spanner, ill have to use two 24mm spanners? I wont be able to use the deep socket until I get the banjo off and I want to take the last fitting off?

 

Thanks for that mate, sounds like a PITA but were already on a roll with pulling this thing apart so might as well do it now before we change oil and oil filter

yep... that's basically correct (I can't remember if it's 24 or 22mm, but something like that). It's a bit of a stuff about, but not too difficult - you need to shorten one anyway, so you should have a full-size backup to do the "holding".

Hi all,

        I have an 07 TTG and had the oil sensor on the feed line go it fits into the top of the banjo,well what I did was took the sensor out and plugged it with a brass plug so what I want to know is will this affect the oil supply? ,also the harness plug that clips onto the sensor well that broke at the wire that plugs onto the sensor are they a sealed unit?.Any advice is appreciated so thanks in advance.

Nope, it's fine to just have the plug in there as it won't affect oil supply.

Just get a new plug and wiring (from either ford spares or a wrecker) and splice it back in.

Do these Falcon Garrett turbo's require oil line restrictors as I have seen some of these after market turbo oil line kits with a restrictor orifice inplace . . .   some do some dont.

 

Whats correct ?

yes, they need a restrictor. The stock turbo has a restriction in the oil supply connection banjo fitting.

There is a very small filter in the block end  banjo fitting that will need to be removed and you need a small pair of opening cir clip plyers the new kit bolts back on without the small filter the filter is in the bolt not the  banjo 

 

The new filter in the kit restricts the flow enough

Yes, I have already removed the OEM filter which is 30mm long on an FG and also removed the OEM metal supply line and installed an Earls's filter supply line but I was not aware of this restrictor that has been mentioned. 

 

I never found one when I removed / installed the lines and fittings so I was asking where this restrictor is supposed to be located  🤔

 

I have seen oil line kits that have a small orifice opening on the 90 deg turbo end fitting but the Earl's kit that I have did not have it.
