Got a you recall what the brand of the remote oil filter bracket is? And what is the 'switch' on the top of the bracket? And do you have a thermostat in the line?
The switch regulates flow to the oil cooler. You don't really need the oil cooler under street conditions and shutting off the oil flow raises the heat in the engine. No thermostat in the oil line, I just make adjustments depending on how hot it is outside.

Here is a link to the manufacturer:

Beaumont Metal Works, Manufacturer of Industrial belt grinders and finishing equipment

Fair warning: it's not cheap and plumbing it to his satisfaction was one of Doug's biggest challenges. Looks really cool though!
