Default Amazon has em

Looks like Amazon has them, but they are a bit more spendy than Sportys.

Oof. That's quite a markup.

Thanks to getting a little "click-happy" a while back, I ended up with a pile more -110 oil filters than I will be needing anytime soon. Anybody that want to trade for some 108's, let me know. I'll bring a half-dozen or so to Sun And Fun.

Default Oil filter

I ordered two Tempest 110s last night from Spruce, it said they would ship
April 9th, the scary thing about is it did not reference a year.
In fifty years I have never not been able to get suitable replacement parts until the greedy capitalist sold their manufacturing to foreign countries, so their bottom line was better, now we get to pay thru the roof for supplies.

Ya I am sure hoping that Spruce doesn't do what I have seen in the past, just keep pushing the date back. I too am waiting on some.

I have been using the Napa filter for years now. I have cut open both and see no difference the metal case and the pleated filter.

Well I needed 48103's (13/16" female thread) and the price was my tipping point. I caved and bought the Wix (NAPA GOLD) for $7.10 shipped to my house. With a 345 pound burst pressure and all the other details fitting my criteria.
I decided that after about 60 years of being around tons of motors and and never having seen a burst filter or one that ''unscrewed'' itself. I gave up on the ""Aviation"" filters.
If I want to safety wire it I have a bunch of hose clamps.
My three cents worth.

OK, now I'm confused. Which is the NAPA cross reference part for a 48110? I bought a NAPA one a while ago and am now trying to figure out which of my airplanes it's supposed to fit. DOH!

EDIT: Dope slap time! I knew the answer before I asked the question but something prevented that part of my brain from functioning... at all! Just add the threaded nipple to convert the NAPA 1068 to the equivalent of a 48110. DOH and Double DOH!!!!
