Oil Filter Kits?

Postby ChattanoogaHelicopters » Fri Sep 07, 2007 2:40 am

I was wondering if anyone had any experience using any oil filter adapter kits? I know Airwolf makes a stc'd one for the Hiller/Franklin, Aircraft Spruce has it for $900.00

It claims on their website to extend engine life and cool the oilt temp upwards of 20C! I know they run hot in the summer, but I would like to see mine run a little cooler.

Anybody have one? Whatcha think?

I installed a kit on my C model, I really havnt seen any real temp reduction but you have a bit more oil in the system and the linemight help with some cooling I guess . I only have about 1o hours on a new engine so well see. I have been trying to plug or reduce the amount of air feeding out around the engine so more might go through the cooler. But Im really wanting to add a second cooler. If you get the kit, its not really set up for a c model the hoses dont fit right and the fittings are incorrect. I had to build a new hose with the correct fittings.
