Default Canadian source for tempest oil filter?

Aircraft spruce canada is showing no stock for Tempest AA48110-2 oil filters, and their website says no stock until Feb!! Weird. Does anybody know of another source in Canada for these? Or an alternative replacement filter that will work?

Default Lifetime oil filter

Switch to a reusable/lifetime filter -- see https://kandpengineering.com/products/

You will need the SF15 with the 3/4-3/4-16 nipple.

Apparently there is a worldwide shortage on oil filters!

Thanks! I don't see an SF15. Did you mean the S15?
https://kandpengineering.com/product/s15/
And the nipple you mentioned is this one?
https://kandpengineering.com/product...4x16-x-3-4x16/
And that's all i need? How does it work - you wash these things out somehow between oil changes?

Make the switch and use automotive oil filters.

I scored a Champion 48110-1 for myself from a friend recently
& as it happens just received a Tempest 48110-2 off B/O from ACS Canada yesterday.
You can have it for my costs plus shipping if you want it. PM me.

Here is a very good thread on the reusable filter.

https://vansairforce.net/community/s...=207816&page=4

I saw one the other day going on a certified aircraft. Looks to be excellent quality.

Default Oil filter

If you donít need them immediately, order at ACS. I did and eventually got my filter in approximately 3 months.
