Oil Filter Connection

I'm looking for information on the correct connections for the oil filter on a 1937 Plymouth 201 C.I.D. engine. I found the following photo on line, but it has a disturbing note with it. Any comments on this?

Connections to the oil filter along with an explanation of how it works in (return to sump controlled by a second set of ports on the pressure relief valve) are in the factory service manual. And reprints of at least the '36-'42 factory service manual are available. Basically the inlet of the filter is connected to a fitting on the main oil gallery and the return is hooked to a spot on the block by the oil pressure relief valve that will shut off flow through the filter if the pressure drops too low.

 

With respect to the comment imbedded in that picture, it sounds like gibberish to me. Not positive about the exact filter canister in the photo, but the one(s) I have clearly have inlet and outlet marked so figuring out how to plumb them is easy.
