That bracket looks like you ordered it from a custom filter company. Super nice craftsmanship. That is beautiful. How much would you charge to make another one of those? I have an 03 3500 Cummins and I can't find a bracket where I can run the newer cat filters like you were talking about. Right now I only have stock filtration. I just replaced all 6 of my injectors, feed tubes, fuel lines, fuel filter, oil, etc. I have 200K miles on the truck and I don't even want to start it without better filtration. I used all 100% brand new Bosch parts. No remains here. Man those things are expensive!!! I want the best filtration possible before I start her again for the 1st time and put her back in service. What you have done Is perfect. I'd love to buy one of those brackets. If you can't do it, I completely understand. Either way, it's nice to see people thinking outside the box, and making what they want to use happen! Message me if you can or will do the bracket for me. Either way, best of luck and would you post some pics of the final results? Thanks.
Definitely will post pics of the final. This bracket measures 5.25" along the base that bolts to the head, width is 2.75". The upright section measures 6.5" in length, width is 3 7/8". The length of the support piece is 9", 1.25" width.
It holds the filter head up high enough to mount the longer better UHE filter, which people should be using instead of the 1R0750 0r 1R0749 which is the advanced filter older technology. it places the filter head at the same height as the air horn.
A metal shop could cut and bend this for you. Then you could drill the holes. I actually choose the 1/8 aluminum as it can easily be bent by me and doubled it up for more strength.
I did find out if your going to use the longer 4161225 Cat, the filter has to run at a slight angle on my bracket to be able to clear to clear the CP3 pump. Worth it as that filter has builtin water separator and the better filtration. Otherwise to run the longer filter, needs a wide spacer, maybe and inch, or make bottom bracket longer to clear the cp3 pump. It also comes closer to the power steering reservoir with a spacer, so angling it a little solves both issues with the long filter.
I can get this locally for $30
