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. No more busted knuckles. No more bad words. At your next filter change, UPGRADE to state-of-the-art Tempest SPIN EZ oil filters - the filter that comes off without a fight!

The only thing stuck now is the competition.

Note: The Tempest® SPIN EZ® spin-on oil filters’ FAA approved design previously included an optional magnetic inspection aid for maintenance personnel which is capable of attracting fine steel particles to assist with detecting ferrous material during post oil-change filter inspection. Unfortunately, due to supply chain disruptions, Tempest is no longer able to procure this proprietary magnet and that feature will no longer be available. All other components and filtration quality you trust from Tempest® SPIN EZ® spin-on oil filters remain unchanged.

Similar to Champion filter but I like the magnetic feature to hold ferrous material.

Piper Warrior Spruce sends to my mechanic every year for the annual. Quick turnaround, good product, gets me back in the air fast. Thanks Aircraft Spruce!

Usually get my filters from Spruce. Noticed that the last filters were dry lube and some were older stock that were not. Not a big deal...I usually wipe the dry lube off and apply DC4 anyways. The first dry lube filter I used in April weeped.

A little cheaper than Champion, and contain a magnet to remove any steel particles. The filter can is made from heavy duty steel, and the inside appears to be well made too. The magnet is an excellent feature. When I change filters the magnet has a small amount of dark ferrous metal dust on it.

Q: Which filter for a 0360 A4M?

The recommended replacement filter for the O360-A4M is the Tempest AA48110-2 S/O Oil Filter (08-01270). This is a general recommendation and we cannot gaurantee that it is correct for each aircraft. We recommend that customers verify their own currently installled filter before placing the order.

Q: What does S/O mean? Which filter fits Lycoming IO-360? Thanks

S/O stands for "Spin On" as they are spin on type filters. The recommended filter for a Lycomin IO-360 is the AA48110-2. This is a general recommendation and we cannot gaurantee that it is correct for each aircraft. We recommend that customers verify their own currently installed filter before placing the order.

Q: Which filter is the recommended replacement for the Lycoming IO-360-L2A? What is the difference between AA48110-2 & CH48110-1?

The recommended filter for a Lycoming IO-360-L2A is the AA48110-2. This is a general recommendation and we cannot guarantee that it is correct for each aircraft. We recommend that customers verify their own currently installed filter before placing the order. There is no difference in fit or application between the Champion CH48110-1 and the AA48110-2. The only difference is the brand name and the technology in the filter.

Q: Which Tempest oil filter fits an FM type adaptor T.A.F.-L (Part # 08-00631)? Thanks

The correct Tempest oil filter for 08-00631 (ENG MOUNT OIL FLTR TAF-L) would be 08-01268 (TEMPEST AA48108-2 OIL FILTER).

Q: Does Aircraft Spruce have a Cross Reference chart showing Plane Type Vs Filter Part Number?

Thank you for bringing this oversight to our attention. We have since added a link to the web page under the "Application Guide" tab. Please click to the link to find the Tempest Oil Filter application guide in PDF format.

Q: The 210 I just bought has an after market oil filter adapter. There is a placard that states that the filter adapter does not incorporate an internal relief valve so the oil filter must have that capability. Do you know if the Tempest AA48109 has internal bypass capability?

Per Tempest: Yes, it does have the internal bypass capability.

Q: I own a 2010 Aviat Husky A1C- 200. The engine is a Lycoming IO-360. Which Tempest spin on filter is recommended for my engine? Thanks

Per the previous Q+A reply: The recommended filter for a Lycoming IO-360 is the AA48110-2. This is a general recommendation and we cannot guarantee that it is correct for each aircraft due to aftermarket modifications, etc which are unknown to us.

Q: What is the difference between Tempest Oil Filters AA48108-2 and a AA48110-2? My re-builder put an AA48108-2 on my Lycoming O-360-A4M but I know the AA48108-2 is specified for the engine.

The Tempest filter AA48108-2 has female threads, and the AA48110-2 has a male threaded stud to attach it to the engine. The AA48108-2 is commonly used on Continental engines, but you may want to contact your re-builder to see if an adapter of some sort was installed to use the AA4108-2.

Q: I presently use a Champion CH48108-1 on my Lycoming IO-360-A1B6 with 90 degree adapter. Is the AA48108-2 the correct Tempest replacement filter for that Champion part? Also, is the Tempest filter shorter than the Champion?

The Tempest AA48108-2 is the replacement for a Champion CH48108-1 and is approx 3/16" shorter than the Champion filter.

Q: Tempest AA48110-2 and AA48108-2 are the same physical size and thread. Can you tell me the difference inside?

The difference is AA48108-2 has a female thread and the AA48110-2 has a male thread.
