    Default New Tool!

    With the Air Wolf filter, I don't have too bad of a time with oily messes. But, this looks like something that I need to have! Any thought why a guys would not add this to his toolbox?

    The oil filter on my Pacer is mounted upside down. When I drain the oil I punch two or three little holes in the top of the filter and let it sit over night. The next day I can take the filter off without any spill of oil.

    Mine, too. It is the oil changes that I do on other planes that makes me want this. Especially the ones with the standard Lycoming filter adapter. Or worse, the filters that are mounted at a right angle and canted 45 up! Those ones are the pits!

    The B & C oil filter adapter, for those thinking of changing to a filter, is a no fuss no muss deal.

    For ease of access, you can't beat the Air Wolf! Uses a 48109 filter which has more area.

    My B&C is mounted upside down. I just knock a hole in the top with a hammer and a punch and let it drain out back into the engine. Saves 38.95 plus shipping.

    I use a grocery store plastic bag wrapped around my filter. I've got the Lycoming adapter that kicks the filter straight back.

    Works real good and at a price I can afford.
