This is what I did a couple of years back and I have not had any issues.
I believe I also had to remove the clutch slave in order to get it
installed but once installed it seems to be working well.
Removing the filter is still a pain due to the tight fit but with a
filter wrench designed to grasp the filter from below its not too tough.

Subject: Spin on oil filter adaptor
If I mount the spin on adapter straight down, I cant remove the
filter because of the clutch slave. Is there any problem angling the
adapter slightly toward the front of the car. John Mitchell 76 TR6
