Does anyone manufacture a small bypass filter?

I've used the Amsoil 6" filter in the past but I would like one that occupies less space; for example, something about the size of a PF454.

I would cheerfully trade more frequent element changes for compactness.

Thanks... Mike

The smallest spin on bypass filter that I know of is a Baldwin B296. It is 3-11/16 wide and 3-7/8 long. You would need to get a 5/8-18 threaded mount for it. There is a oil flow restrictor built into the filter already (around .060 in size). However, if you want to slow the flow down even further you would need to install a .030 to .045 restrictor fitting somewhere, preferably before the filter. I personally use the .030 size on my bypass units. Hope this helps you out.

Napa 51050 is the same. Both are about the size of a PH8, and have a built in restrictor.
Not exactly on the small size for the OP.

The Fram P3317 is the shorter version of the PB50

The Hastings LF445 is just a touch over 3" long,
making it the smallest spin on by-pass filter that I know of.

I think it crosses to the Baldwin B222:

B296 is 3-7/8 long. It crosses to a Fleetguard LF786.
The LF786 is dirt cheap on Amazon.
