    More on oil filters

    Hello everyone,

    A day or so ago, I sent Casper Labs (maker of oil filters) an email asking
    if they have a filter that would replace the screen in my plane and add on
    an oil filter. I told them that my plane is a 1970, A24, with an IO-360-A2B
    engine. Their reply follows:

    "Sorry Scott, It will not fit any of the light Beech's with Lycoming
    engines. There are not many it will not fit, but you guys (and us) are out
    of luck as there is an engine mount tube directly in the way!
    Bill Ryan
    Casper Labs, Inc."

    I thought I read on BAC and on MM that there is an oil filter set up that
    will work. Have I misunderstood and there really is no oil filter set up
    that will work other than a remote filter on the fire wall?

    Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    Thank you,

    Scott Flood

    More on oil filters

    Scott,
    We have the 76 Sundowner with the standard engine and the standard Lycoming
    oil filter adapter works fine. If you want, I'll take a pic and send it to
    you to see if it will work with your mount.
    We used the same thermo device from the screen adapter.

    More on oil filters

    Scott:

    I just recently installed a Lycoming oil filter adapter on my Musketeer. See below for some correspondence on this subject. I have some photos if they would help you.


    Al:

    I bought the adapter off of ebay from Premium Aircraft Parts, 1109 Quincy, Fort Smith AR. 729017823. Phone (479) 646-0121. email: CBRpilot2@aol.com It is Lycoming part # 77852 made by Donaldson part # 204418-156. It is FFA PMA certified. It was $192.50 + $20 shipping (gasket included). It uses Champion oil filter # CH48110 or CH48110-1 (short version).

    David Snodgrass mentioned on MM that he got one from API but only your A&P or FBO can buy from API - wholesale price $156.66. Superior charged him $21.61 for a stud which cost me $5.00.

    Colonial Aviation has one for $155.00 (plus shipping & handling) including the gasket, stud and bolts. http://colonialaviation.com/_wsn/page3.html so this is probably your best bet.

    Casper Labs http://www.casperlabs.com/casperlabsinc/id3.html has a "No Spill" 90 degree type for $276 (plus $7.50 shipping), however you should check for interference before ordering.

    Good luck and let me know if I can help.

    Don,

    Thanks for the info. Can you give me the details again on where you bought it so I can order one. I have forgotten which model this was. I am going to do my annual the end of the month and will have my A&P install.

    Thanks

    I finally got around to installing the oil filter adapter on my engine last week.

    One of the bolts had to be replaced with a stud and nut because of the design of the adapter. The stud was easy to install but it was very difficult to get the nut tightened. Ended up removing the oil cooling lines and the left mag in order to work the wrench to tighten the nut. Other than that everything went well and there were no leaks after run up.

    Mechanic charged me 2 hours labour and $5.00 for the stud.

    Oil changes should be a breeze from now on.

    Attached are some photos.

    Don,

    Thanks for the information an pictures. Looks very similar to my installation. I would be interested to hear how it installs on your engine. You can email me back at the same address.

    I bought the adapter from Premium Aircraft Parts, Fort Smith AR. It is Lycoming part # 77852 made by Donaldson. It is FFA PMA certified and I plan to install it on my 1970 B19 Musketeer 0-320-E2C at the next oil change - probably in March. It uses Champion oil filter # CH48110 or CH48110-1 (short version). It mounts using the same four bolts that currently attach the oil screen to the engine. It sticks straight out the aft of the engine approximately 2 1/2'' plus you will need about 6" for the filter, so if you have at least 9" between your engine and the firewall you should be ok. It clears the vacuum pump drive and sits between the two magnetos. Attached are two photos showing the current oil screen on my engine and as you can see there is lots of clearance between the screen and the right mag. My only interference may be with one of the defrost hoses where it attaches to the firewall. I may have to use the short filter. Also, I may have to use a stud with a nut in place of one of the existing bolts.

    The screen works fine and probably has done so for 35 years, but I figure if I can keep the oil cleaner and protect the engine with a small investment, it is worth it.

    Hope this helps. I will take some more pictures when I install it and let you know if I have any problems. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Best regards,

    Don

    Donald,

    I have been looking at the oil filter adapter you put on Bac. I own a 1980 sundowner and it looks like I might have an interference problem with the right mag if I use this adapter. I would like more information on what type of aircraft you mounted it on and the problems. I have pictures of my engine if you would like me to send them to you to see if there would be a problem. Any input would be helpful. It looks the the system that is sold by Colonial Aviation. I currently have a screen.

    Thanks

    Al

    More on oil filters

    Here's the two Emails I posted about the oil filter adapter I had
    installed on my 1969 Be23 this Winter. The first Email is an overview
    and the second one has the pricing.

    FIRST EMAIL

    I promised an update to everyone considering the change from the screen
    to the direct engine mount oil filter adapter. My A&P installed the
    adapter last week. I haven't had a chance to fly 6083N since the change.
    The main body of the adapter is made by Donaldson and it is the one that
    they sell to Lycoming for their adapter (LW-77852, kit #LW-13743). The
    engine on my 1969 B23 is a O-360 A2G. According to Bob Steward, Lycoming
    gives the same P/N for all the engines except the O-235. Per Donaldson
    the part they manufacture and sell to Lycoming, Cessna Parts Dist. And
    API is PMA certified.

    Here are the parts needed for the oil filter adapter:

    API part# 204418-156 (main body made by Donaldson - only your A&P or FBO
    can buy the part from API) wholesale price $157.00

    Per Bob Steward, the other gaskets and studs (from the parts list below
    that I got from Lycoming) are all available through Superior as PMA
    parts.

    LW-12795 Gasket x 1

    5578426 Gasket x 1 (only if you need the vernatherm gasket replaced)

    25C-10-P03 Stud x 1 (My A&P said this stud is slightly larger than the
    standard stud and was a #!@% to get on - he suggests a regular stud, but
    I don't know the part number)

    Std-8 Washer x 4

    Std-160 Lock Washer x 4

    Std-1411 Nut x 1

    LW-25-1.00 Bolt x 3 (1/4"-20 USS coarse thread per Bob Steward)

    CH-48110 Oil Filter x 1

    Shelby Smith had the same API part installed in his Musketeer last year
    and he reports, "My engine analysis showed a marked improvement."

    I haven't received the bill from my A&P for parts and labor (when I do
    I'll pass the information along). Seeing as how Lycoming wants $475.45
    for the kit, with the Donaldson adapter being the most expensive part,
    I'm assuming I'll save over $200 in parts! A special thanks to Shelby
    Smith, his mechanic David, Bob Steward, and all of you that assisted me
    in finding the parts and lending advise.


    SECOND EMAIL

    This should be the final chapter in my story about the direct engine
    mount oil filter adapter. I finally got my A&P's invoice. Here's the
    breakdown on costs:

    Parts:
    204418-156 adapter assembly $156.66
    25C-10-P03 stud 21.61
    Adapter gasket 1.98
    Ch48110 oil filter 18.50
    Aeroshell 15W50 oil ($4.85 per qt.) 33.95

    Labor:
    Oil and filter change $ 50.00
    Oil filter adapter installation 175.00 (3.5 hours @ $50.00
    per hour)

    TOTAL $457.70 ($102.45 of this
    would occur for just a normal oil change, so net cost was $355.25)

    Oil changes will go from every 25 hours with the oil screen to every 50
    hours with the oil filter. It will take me about 150 hours of flying to
    recover my costs. Please see information from my previous Email (below)
    describing all the parts required.
