Remote oil filter hose size

Is 3/8 ID hose sufficient for remote oil filter?

I have a 3/8 oil filter adapter for VWs, and plan on using 3/8" Hose ID to 1/2" NPT 90 Deg Elbow Brass Fitting for the setup on the Corvair motor end

I think it kinda depends. Are you remoting it to the wheel well or the trunk?

The motor is going into a VW Bus. The filter will be in the left wheel well right next to the motor. You prob know this; The hose has to route back towards the front of the motor around the cooling fan and the head to rear left wheel well . Maybe 3 feet of hose?

I used -8AN hose for my external cooler. The Clark's external adapter came with 3/8 hose Barb's but everything I could find online about external coolers and such we're -8AN or -10AN. -8 is equivalent to a 1/2" hose I believe.

Mike brings up a good point. The ports going into the cooler aren't any bigger than 3/8" so a 3/8" hose is probably fine.

Just watch your fittings! Many times today holes are smaller.

If I remember right I have AN-8 all the way up to the front and back.
I was thinking AN-6 is 3/8 but my memory may not be working well tonight. I know I used AN-6 for fuel lines and my oil line is bigger.
