For no reason other than a little fun I'm going to fit a Baldwin B50 to my Mondeo ST with a Duratec 30.

What size orifice would be a good starting point? And what or where are we getting the orifices from?

There's a few bungs in the engine block, I was going to use one for the oil supply and return to the sump or rocker cover.

I always used a 0.032 orifice for bypass filters. Enough flow without reducing oil pressure.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

What are we using as restrictors? I'm considering getting a but of 5/8th threaded bar, cutting it down and drilling a 0.032" hole through the centre of it and using it as a male to male coupler of sorts.

What does the B50 come with for oil control? And do you have room for the B164 or is that to long?

Get a copper .035" MIG welding tip (1/4" x 20 threads)

Cut it shorter (as needed) to allow for desired flow rate.

The hole in these is about .065", it's relatively big

Most systems (depending upon the desired flow rate of the BP relative to the total system capacity) will be anywhere from .050 down to .030. I would recommend starting smaller and working your way up to the desired flow rate.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
