Tempest AA48104 Spin-EZ Oil Filter.
What’s Tempest’s recommendation for dealing with stuck oil filters? At your next filter change - UPGRADE to Tempest’s patent-pending “non-sticking” SPIN EZ™ aircraft engine oil filters.
Tempest’s SPIN EZ filters are designed to come off easy. Heat, time and pressure can extrude oil, grease, DC4® compound or similar liquid lubricants from between a filter’s rubber seal and the filter mount pad - leaving the filter seemingly “bonded” to the engine’s mount pad - and making it nearly impossible to remove. Tempest’s proprietary SPIN EZ adhered solid seal lubricant stays where it’s supposed to - between the seal and the mount pad’s surface. SPIN EZ solid lubricant won’t extrude or squirt out from under the seal. It prevents the bond forming environment that makes legacy filters stick.
Avoid frustration. Save time and money. No more messy DC-4 compound. No more stabbed cans. At your next filter change, UPGRADE to state-of-the-art Tempest SPIN EZ oil filters - the filter that comes off without a fight!
Note: The Tempest® SPIN EZ® spin-on oil filters’ FAA approved design previously included an optional magnetic inspection aid for maintenance personnel which is capable of attracting fine steel particles to assist with detecting ferrous material during post oil-change filter inspection. Unfortunately, due to supply chain disruptions, Tempest is no longer able to procure this proprietary magnet and that feature will no longer be available. All other components and filtration quality you trust from Tempest® SPIN EZ® spin-on oil filters remain unchanged.

TEMPEST AA48104 OIL FILTER
I have been using Tempest filters for 20+ years. I just purchased a Beech Baron A56TC which calls out for the AA48104. While the threads probably fit, there is no physical way that the filter will fit in the space available in this application. The filter is longer than their competitions filter which does (just barely) fit. Bummer, because the other filter is quite a bit more expensive. The 56TC/A56TC should be removed from their application chart.

Similar to Champion filter but I like the magnetic feature to hold ferrous material.

The AA48108-2 and AA48109-2 will have the anti-drain back feature.
Yes, it does.
You would need to check application guide for your engine but they are the same thread and can be interchangeable physically.
