The new filter has all the features which have made the Tempest oil filter so popular, including the magnetic secondary filtration system, and higher burst pressure.
Full Can Thickness:.019”
Base Plate Thickness:.100”
Media Size:118 sq. in.
This filter has 4 tabs on the top to allow safety wiring (unlike the ROTAX). That seems good, but the filter does not fit between the exhaust manifold and the oil filter threaded stud without removing the exhaust manifold on my Rotax engine. May be peculiar to my LSA layout, but its a colossal disappointment. The filter itself seems like a great unit if it fits your plane. Perhaps Tempest could offer a version without the tabs for those of us who cant stand any extra length.

This filter looks very well but in my plane a Dynamic WT9 they donÂ´t fit in my engine because they are a little bit larger than the original ROTAX filter and they have four studs for safety wire that is a good thing but they donÂ´t fit in my Rotax 912 engine. I will have to order the original ROTAX filter. Tempest must fix this because his filter donÂ´t fit all the ROTAX engines
Is this Tempest Rotax Oil Filter compatible with the Rotax 912 engine? The part number is the same from Rotax! Thanks
Per the supplier: Yes, this filter will fit the Rotax 912 engine.
Does this Tempest Rotax oil filter have the same internal bypass pressure rating as the Rotax filter?
It does have the same settings as the Rotax filter. This is the only filter besides the Rotax filter that should be used with 912 series engines.
Does the Tempest Rotax oil filter have an internal check valve like the Rotax brand has?
Yes, it does have an internal check valve.
What is the filtration size of the media (e.g. 30 microns)? Does it come without the wiring tabs on the top? What is the overall length with the wiring tabs flat?
Per Vendor: 30 microns nominal. Safety wire provisions incorporated in design. Overall length 3 1/16 inch.
