Tempest engine mounted oil filter adapters eliminate the need for oil screens and provide increased filtering capabilities for longer engine life. Being engine mounted with no external lines, they reduce mess during oil changes and increase the time between oil changes.
STC APPROVED. PAPERWORK INCLUDED.
Note: Tempest filters are included with adaptors. Price listed is for one adapter each.
I ordered the Oil Filter adaptor TAF-L for my Cessna 150L (1971) . The order arrived very well packed and arrived quickly. I have it installed now during Annual- Very Happy with the product- also received a copy of the STC and C of C (FAA 8130) .Aircraft Spruce is a great company to work with.
Wish the STC was printed darker...kinda cheap copy and hard to read. Otherwise great product.
Easy to install in an IO 360K, had to remove alternator for filter housing to clear but, expected that. To get to 65 ft lbs, a 2nd pair of hands holding the housing so, it wont spin, was required. Overall, its nice improvement over the originals.
A simple solution to my Cessna 150 oil filter need. This is high-quality and easy installation. I took care of it during my annual, and now I look forward to fewer oil changes!
Quality parts, easy install. Reasonable price.
It is an awesome answer to cleaner oil. I would only suggest better directions. I did not know if it went up or down and if I had to put the spacer for the oil temp. probe back in. The answer is: it points down at an angle for clearance, and yes you have to reinstall the spacer for the oil temp probe. I did not and it leaked 2 quarts in 5 minutes when I fired it up.
Bought this to replace the original F&M filter (same STC) due to the original having insufficient threads to compress the gaskets properly. If you have the old F&M with the square nut you might want to change to this if you are having leaking problems as it has approximately 3 more threads allowing proper gasket compression at the proper torque.
Very easy to install. STC is straightforward and very well written! Installed on my C-85 and was up and running inside 2 hours. Wish I would have done it sooner!
Great kit - easy installation and everything needed is included! Installed on Continental O-200. Fast shipping from Spruce.
I purchased an AirWolf first. Returned same. See my comments on that product under its review. I am much happier with what I received in this package. It easily installed on my airplane. It is fully functional out of the box, simplistic, seems to do what I wanted to do, and was both complete and very well-built. Strongly recommend.
Yes, these are STC'd.
The STC paperwork is included in the box with these FM engine mounted oil filter adapters.
These are made from a casting.
Yes, it will come with the filter, adapter, gasket and instructions.
Per Vendor: An A&P, working under/for an FAA repair station with a designated inspector inspecting his work, can install, complete the 337, and sign off installation of an oil filter adapter if he has the knowledge of how to do so. If working just with his/her A&P license, he/she can complete the 337 as well as installing the adapter, but has to have an IA sign after it is completed.
The only filters that will fit and work properly with adapter # 08-00631 are the Tempest AA48108-2 or the Champion CH48108-1.
Yes, these are STC'd for the engine not the airframe.
Per Tempest: This would mount where the oil cooler would be. This doesn't screw into where the oil screw is.
The Tempest AA48108-2 filter is used on this unit.
Yes, this has provisions for a temp probe.
