When oil is not being pumped through the filter by the engine, the oil filter can be quickly drained using an air chuck on the side of the filter housing with compressed air. Apply a small shot of air to the air fitting on the side of the inlet opening and the oil will empty out of the filter assembly in seconds exposing the filter element and filtered particles, even when filtering non transparent fluids like dirty engine oil.
This allows the user to visually see any particles and contaminants that were filtered out of the oil system, which will help to determine if the contaminants and particles are from normal use or from bearings and other components excessively wearing in the engine.
Filter assemblies are designed to filter all types of oil and fluid for different applications. including racing, marine, automotive, farm, and industrial. Filter assemblies are designed for fluid systems with a maximum working pressure of 150 PSI and a maximum temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Filter housing is made from billet alum. , all mating surfaces are designed for an O-ring for a superior seal with no gaskets, In and Out ports are -12 ORB, 1/8" pipe provision for an oil pressure outlet and simple to take apart and clean with four 3/8" fasteners to hold the housing together.
Filter includes a mounting bracket that has two 3/8-16" bolt holes to mount on a flat surface. Includes micron element & directions, but does not come with Inlet or Outlet hose fittings.
The physical dimentions of the 4" filter assembly are: 5.00" wide x 6.00" long x 3.00" thick and weight's 3 pounds.
If racer would like to purchase -12 fittings to plumb the filter adapter be sure to check out #340-0038.
Racer can choose filter element for weight of oil being run from the drop down menu.
