Default Oil Filter Housing Flush Post Spun Conn Rod Brg

As part of my engine cleanup following a spun connecting rod bearing, I'm interested in flushing out my oil filter housing. I wiped out a lot of bearing flakes from mine under the filter with lots in my oil pan & based on what I saw, there HAS TO be more of the same crap in passageways in that thing that I'd like to flush it out but I don't know what's what as far as the caps, screws and plugs on the unit. Many ppl replace their oil cooler (which is fed & takes oil from the housing), so it seems to me that it's pretty critical to flush this thing too! Has anyone done this and/or know where to get a flow diagram of this part? Obviously, if all else fails, just getting fluids in and out of it is better than doing nothing & it may indicate what opening leads where but I don't want to get the flow directions backwards if I don't have to. Thanks in advance!

Take you vanos apart, and clean it, also.

I just did it on a motor that spun a bearing. That crap was everywhere in there.
