I like it. Here's the but. What happens when filtered oil quits flowing? In other words, what happens when one of the filters does its job and is so full of contaminants that it shuts the operation down? Do you just crank up the pressure to force more through?
I ask because that is my issue when using a rack filter like you have. We vacuum filter but it's sometimes frustrating to know which one of the four filters needs changed.
In your case, I imagine that a T with valve after every filter would let you know. If oil quit flowing, tap the tee (with hose attached) and see if you have flow. Keep doing this up the line until you identify the blocked filter.
I've not set this valve get up on our system so it is just theory at this point.
You could use an oil pressure gage system tee'd into the filter bases and switching from one to the next till you find the culpret. Either electric or wet sensed, either one would tell you the filter to change.
