my 55 olds has a oil canister on the radiator support and a oil canister down by the oil pan. why ?
the can on the radiator support IS definitely filtering oil. I was told it was an accessory oil filter. I don't know what the means. it is a 324 stock.rocket 88. any help would be great thank you.

back in the day, there were aftermarket oil filter systems offered to promote more capacity and better filtration. Some even used a roll of toilet paper as the filter. they were usually plumbed from a oil pressure port from the engine with a return to the valley cover or oil pan. hope this helps
