You can also obtain this bracket from Shelby https://www.shelbyengines.com/products/remote-oil-filter-bracket

That bracket is for FE and will not fit a small block.

I wish I had a drawing.  I had a posterboard template I cut up to test fit, and once I made my bracket I tossed it.  Should have saved it into my build book.  Wait, i may have ... let me look for it tonight

Hit another milestone today on my build.  Got to drive the car on the road in go cart mode for the first time!  Can't wait to go for a real ride, but this will do for today.  The thing is incredible, I'm so excited to get working on the body now and get this thing out on the open road.  Not sure how to post a video here, if it's possible at all, so I'll post a link to the video I put on my Facebook page.

Video quality isn't great on there because of Facebook, but still fun to see.

Thats awesome!   I remember my momentous first go-cart drive a few years back.   Was a long time coming.     I was a lot more cautious on my round-the-block trip because I was constantly thinking about the doof that actually assembled all the brakes on that thing - ME!

...and a slight suggestion: ask your videographer to turn the camera phone horizontal when recording so we can see the whole car!

I ordered the FE bracket and with a little modification was able to make it fit my engine. However I am out in left field with a Cleveland. All I did was nipped the end and flipped it over and rewelded in order to fit. Some where on the old computer I have a more detailed drawing I think, or in my pile of templates. Then again it might have been a on the fly design and build. See attachment to help explain what I did by nipping the end and flipping over. By doing that moved the hole over enough to attach.

Yeah, that was my 14 year old daughter recording.  I was hoping for a little better, but it will do for now.

Next I'm planning to put the body back on and get everything sitting right and get the hood, trunk and doors aligned.  Then I'm planning to get all the holes drilled/cut for all the latches and everything.  I'll get some more pics/video up when I have it all together, then it's coming apart again so I can do all the body work.

I got to take my car for a little ride today with the body on.  Still need to adjust the hood, so that wasn't on since I have the hinges off at the moment.  Also took the seats out to keep them safe while I work on stuff.

Here is a link to some videos on my Facebook page if anyone is interested.

Also, I feel like I'm an official Cobra owner now that I've got my first snake bite.  Couldn't get a great picture of it, but I managed to do it twice today .   One made a nice big red mark, second one made a big blister on the red mark.  The wife is probably going to insist on some heat shields when it's ready for passengers.

Be sure and get it taken care of asap. I did the same thing several years ago and it tuned into a nasty situation and took two trips to the Dr., two shots, and two weeks to heal. Still have the scar.
