New revolutionary LRT oil drain, patent pending feature is designed to drain oil, caused by a leaking Garlock Seal, before it reaches the drive coupler. Provides a tell tale leak path.

This assures optimum performance.

After assembly, each pump is functionally tested. After this initial testing, the pump is then disassembled, inspected for any unusual wear or abnormalities, and reassembled for a second test run. This extensive testing procedure assures that only first-class products leave their facility. 3 year, 1300 hour warranty. OEM Manufactured.

Very nice work by both Aircraft Spruce and Tempest on the warranty consideration for the failed air pump previously reported on. Spoke with Spruce and received the RMA, shipped it next day. Received an email from Tempest Tech Support the same day, called them to discuss and BAM!, issue resolved with the failed pump and its replacement unit. Excellent work by both companies!

Overall, pump looks to be of good quality, and I trust Tempest products. Installed this pump on our A36 53.3 hrs ago and it failed today shooting an approach. Removed it from the accessory pad and could see no outwardly noted reason for failure. Basis that, a higher star rating can be achieved pending a positive outcome of their inspection for warranty consideration.
