Tempest AA48103-2 Spin-EZ Oil Filter.
What’s Tempest’s recommendation for dealing with stuck oil filters? At your next filter change - UPGRADE to Tempest’s patent-pending “non-sticking” SPIN EZ™ aircraft engine oil filters.
Tempest’s SPIN EZ filters are designed to come off easy. Heat, time and pressure can extrude oil, grease, DC4® compound or similar liquid lubricants from between a filter’s rubber seal and the filter mount pad - leaving the filter seemingly “bonded” to the engine’s mount pad - and making it nearly impossible to remove. Tempest’s proprietary SPIN EZ adhered solid seal lubricant stays where it’s supposed to - between the seal and the mount pad’s surface. SPIN EZ solid lubricant won’t extrude or squirt out from under the seal. It prevents the bond forming environment that makes legacy filters stick.
Avoid frustration. Save time and money. No more messy DC-4 compound. No more stabbed cans. At your next filter change, UPGRADE to state-of-the-art Tempest SPIN EZ oil filters - the filter that comes off without a fight!

I originally ordered oil and a filter and the order had to be split based on inventory. Unfortunately during the Christmas chaos the filter package got lost. I called customer service and they quickly helped me by shipping out another filter. Many thanks to all who turned my minor stress event into a no brainer.
Good filter, and now you dont even need to put compound on the gasket.
Been using them for a long time. Seem to perform well.
I ordered 2 cases of oil, a wrench, and a safety wire pliers. Iâ€™m still waiting for the oil and the pliers. The filter is fine but without the other items Iâ€™m limited. The wrench came in a couple of days after the filter. Iâ€™m still in need of the oil and pliers.
Yes, the -2 is simply a Tempest designation. This is designed to be used in the exact same applications as the Champion CH48103-1 or any 48103 filter.
Both the 48108 and 48103 filters have female threads, however, the thread sizes are different and the applications are different.
