Andrejsv, The oil filter was placed there because it waqs next to the oil pump and was easily accessed as a truck engine. There are remote oil filter kits out there. It is unlikely that there are threaded connections under the filter housing. This will require an adapter of some sort. This is common in industrial engines.

if the remote unit has long hose runs it may drain back over time (Days, weeks) Some engines have prelube pumps to get pressure up befor starting. On smaller diesels it is easy to turn it over with the starter for a few revs befor starting. Easy if you have a fuel shutoff solenoid.

The 4-108 was available with a factory remote oil filter. This also included a different cooler mounted to the side of the block. It cooled the trans oil for the velvet Drive and engine oil. TAD should have the parts you need used.

heres one pic of the factory remote
again, I've only seen these set ups when a Velvet Drive was attached to the engine. You could still run the remote and a cooler with another trans.

and another

I think your 4-108 is similar to my Perkins Perama. If so you will find a small tube on the starboard side near the bottom of the engine that is capped with a hex nut. The tube pierces the oil pan and runs to the bottom of the pan. It is very easy to get all the oil out using this tube. It is also very easy to break it if you tighten the nut too much--which is how I know where it runs.
