My '81 410 Commander is fitted with twin 454 Crusaders. They were fitted with an oil filter adapter which allowed for a remote mounted oil filter (easier to reach) as well as lines for the oil cooler. It appears that sometime during previous ownership, someone failed to line it up correctly before reinstalling it, and torqued the bolts too much trying to get it to seal. It warped the flange so it will no longer seal, and I desperately need to find a replacement unit and gaskets. Does anyone know where I might locate one?

You can get components for oil filter relocation kits from someone like Jegs -- http://www.jegs.com/pt/Engine+Oil+Filter+Remote+Mounting+Kit/429480...
I think you have CC Marine power engines . If indeed they are crusaders, they are still around . Either way Crusader should have something that works .
