The new adapter has been drilled and tapped for the aluminum 37 degree flared fittings.
Tube size is 3/8" and the pipe size is 1/4". This arrangement is being used because of my starter location which is shown in a following photo.
The beginning of my remote oil filter and cooler adapter. The oil cooler has been removed and this block is cut from 6061-T6 aluminum. The stock oil cooler adapter is used as a template to drill bolt holes.

Here you can see the rear of my starter and the oil line adapter.
Another view of the rear starter and oil line adapter.
In this photo you can see I have mounted the oil cooler and oil filter to the firewall. The oil cooler is the stock Corvair cooler with tube fittings welded in place by William Wynne. The oil filter is on a remote mount purchased from Great Plains Aircraft Supply. The hose is Aeroquip 303-6H and the hose fittings are Aeroquip 491-6 from Wicks Aircraft Supply.
The oil hoses as they attach to the oil line adapter. The flow of oil exits the case from the lower port, flows directly to the oil filter, then through the oil cooler and returns to the engine in the upper port.
