Unless you feel like doing major modifications to the oil passages in the block, you can only add a bypass oil filter system. You can tee in the oil pressure line at the oil pressure switch and you will need to drill and tap the oil base for the return line.

I would check with Max. Since he just bought out an old Onan dealer. He may have the sheet on the Onan option kit for the CCK.But if I remember correctly. It is like David posted.

Bypass works fine. No need to drill the oil base - just put a nipple and a tee into the oil drain plug hole.

I would think you would need some sort of flow restricter on the oil filter line to not take all the oil flow to the engine.
