Hi,
First time posting on here.
I have been trying to find a Oil Filter Sandwich Adapter for a 1987 Buick Grand National.
The original adapter has strip threads where the hose lines connects to.
Does anyone know where I could find one or any other options.
I appreciate the help.

Unless youre trying to keep the car completely stock Its not needed to cool the oil.
As the car gets older why risk oil and coolant contamination.

Again just my opinion. If not using take off dont plug the ports.

Yeah the oil filter would actually connect to the oil filter sandwich adapter then to this part in the photo I have sent that is on the passenger side of the car. To be honest not completely sure what it actually does. All I know that the lines off the sandwich adapter connects to the radiator. Excuse the mess in the photo by the way, the GN is a work in progress.

It’s the oil cooler adapter. Connects to the front cover assembly then the filter connects to the adapter.

You’ll see the cooler lines come out of the adapter then go to the top & bottom of the radiator.

I think Scooby has a few of those oil coolers in the lake by his house.
But in the pic above the cooler has been removed by removing the I think 15/16 oil filter stub leaving you with a new stub under the cooler.
You can use a OE or get a Wix 51036 it’s a little longer than OE.
OE thermostat was 190 and oil temp could get up there. Most run 160 today, oil temp should not be a problem. And the oil we run is of higher quality today too.

hello people: I'm trying to find info. on the adaptor, radiator oil cooling lines, and I find nothing in the factory manual. That's kinda weird. It does talk about trans. cooling lines to the rad. but that's it.

hello people: Yes I read that but the manual should talk about it. You know a manual just for the GN or T would be nice. Not that there's a lot dif. from a normal Regal but there are differences as youz guys know.
