|The Tempest AA472 oil filter torque wrench is a great addition to any toolbox. Its 1" hex allows easy installation or removal of all oil filters. The torque wrench also comes preset to 17 foot pounds and is easily recalibrated.|
I haven’t had the chance to ise it yet but this is a welcome addition to my tool kit and should make oil filter changes much easier.
TEMPEST AA472 OIL FILTER TORQUE WRENCH
Looks lIke a high-quality tool. The issue I had with it is that the large filter I have on my Mooney Acclaim doesnt provide enough room to fit the wrench under the accessories and over the top of the filter nut.
Hand tool for oil filter replacement.
Well built quality tool
Works like a champ! The small size makes it really easy to use on our Grumman Tiger.
Great quality and makes installing and ensuring your oil filter is torqued a breeze.
The wrench worked well and is good quality
Works fine, appears well made, used it on a Champion filter. Takes the guess work out and easily fits into the available space on an RV-4/IO-360. Not cheap but should provide years of useful service.
Makes every oil change quick and easy. Torque with confidence.
It worked great and gave me the confidence to know that I have the filter tighten to the right pressure. It was very easy to use and it will also work with Champion filters.
