Default 8BA style oil filter to Beehive canister bracket

Does anyone make a bracket that allows a beehive oil filter to mount up to the 8BA head? Using the stock tapped holes in the head.

Modify an original canister to accept the beehive.

Be advised, you need a '50-'53 canister. '49 uses the head bolts.
That is unless you have '49 heads.
