Nice oil filter with an excellent reputation. Fits easily on my SuperStol 912 installation and I really appreciate being able to safety wire the install.
TEMPEST ROTAX OIL FILTER
Works as expected.
Fit perfectly and easy installed
Fits great on my Sting S4. Plenty of room and love the safety wire tabs after having a Rotax filter loosen up on me.
It fit easily on the 912is even with the safety tabs.
Works well. I also had the problem of the safety wire tabs hitting the exhaust manifold during installation on my 912S Flight Design CTSW. I use a hammer to tap the tabs flush with the can and then install the filter. After the filter is fully seated I use a screwdriver to bend out the one tab I wish to safety wire to. It is ridiculous that the Rotax oil filters do NOT have safety wire tabs.
Fits my SuperSTOL with a 914
Fits good in my Bush Caddy with 914.
Fits Flight Design CTLSi and an added benefit is you can safety wire it. Why Rotax is allowed to sell theirs without safety wire and not get sued is a mystery to me. It is not like you can pull over if you loose oil due to a filter that works its way loose.
