These filters look really nicely made. And the finning of the housing can't hurt for oil cooling! Nice design.....I might just have to order one as well...!
It is the the 3/4×16 X 3/4×16 threaded fitting. Some oil housing may not have the thread mount so you need to add it.

That's what I thought it might be. Thanks! I will need that. Where does one get such a beast?

How does the installation and removal compare with a standard Champion/Tempest filter - specifically, the space between the firewall and filter?

I thinking about pro's and con's of the Challenger version vs the S15 model.

Thanks
compared to a CH48110-1, it is 1 1/4" shorter measuring from top of nut. The diameter is 1" narrower.

It is the same size as a Harley filter...

Just curious for those using this filter. Describe the cleaning process and what solvent are you using? Then where are you disposing of the waste solvent? Can it be taken to a normal oil recycling facility?

Thanks
Keith

I've cleaned my filter twice - once I used about half a can of brake cleaner with the filter in a big plastic food takeaway bowl. Second time, a bit of Jet-A (diesel) in the same bowl. Both times it came out very clean. You could followup with some compressed air, but I didn't.

I'm thinking about trying an ultrasonic cleaner, and had meant to ask here if anyone has any experience with them. Was also thinking about the dishwasher, of course after first cleaned with a solvent.

Disposal of the solvent used: we have waste oil disposal points sprinkled all over the country, and they are fine with a bit of solvent like this. I assume an oil recycling center would be similar.

I have two filter elements so when I'm changing the oil I don't have to stop to clean the filter at that moment, I can do it at my convenience. So far, I have done it while the oil is draining.
