Overview

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!

Q&A

Q: Is there a six pack of tempest AA48108-2 oil filters available at a small discount?

Yes, keyword search part number 08-04971. Our search engine will bring you directly to the page to order.

Q: I have a remote filter with a Champion CH48108-1 filter. Is the Tempest AA48108-2 the same filter?

Yes, the Tempest AA48108-2 and the Champion CH48108-1 are interchangeable. Same specs and application, different brands.

Q: Does this Tempest SPin-EZ AA48108-2 oil filter have a high pressure bypass?

Both AA48108-2 & AA48109 have the oil by-pass incorporated in their design.

Q: If Tempest AA48108-2 is same, & interchangeable with Champion CH48108-1, how come your applicability chart does not show it for use on a 1962 Cessna 182E (Cont O-470 R)? I really would like to use it. I have had shops refuse to use my supplied Tempest filter, said not approved.

In the application PDF listed in the Documents tab, I show the AA48108-2 is the correct model for Cessna 182 with the O-470 engine. AA48108-2 is FAA-PMA and is interchangeable with applications of Champion CH48108-1.

They are 30 micron nominal.

Q: What is the weight of this Tempest AA48108-1 filter?
