Tempest AA48108-2 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!

Excellent quality. Reasonable price. Fast delivery.
Great, easy install, shipping was quick.
Great product and exceptional customer service.
I always lube my new oil filters with a few drops of oil. Many years ago I read the directions and they said to do this. Now they say install it dry. Evidently, I must reread directions each time I do something. This seemed so simple but No.
Regular use it on our heli.
Like others I tried the Tempest filter because it is more economical than the Champion brand. They seem to do the job. Oddly, however, while I have never had trouble unscrewing a Champion filter, I had a heck of a time removing the Tempest filter yesterday. Because I donâ€™t fly nearly enough these days the filter only had 35 hours on it since the last annual. This is not going to stop me from buying and using Tempest filters. I just thought it amusing because of the hype Tempest makes about easy removal.
