If you do the filter mounted on the oil pump cover thing just make sure to carry an extra filter and oil with you especially in the winter time or in cooler climates. The Berg full flow pump cover I have has a relief built in to it so there is no chance of blowing up a filter but those darn "filter mounted on the cover"
pumps do not. I found this out after getting the primo parking spot early one winter night at Chilkoot Charlies(local hot pub) only to come out at the end of the night and leave a Minnie Exxon Valdez by the front door. The worst part was I had to wait until 7:00am that morning for a parts store to open up to get a new filter and my car was 86'ed from Koots parking lot. This happened about the time of the Exxon Valdez and I don't really do the drinkin thing anymore but it sure left a lasting impression. Olspeed
