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”

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.
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.
