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.
It is recommended for fifty weight and under the 60 micron screen and any oil over fifty weight should run the 115 micron screen.
The physical dimensions of the filter assembly are: 6.750" wide x 7.750" long x 3.250" thick and the weight is five and half pounds. If racer would like to purchase -12 fittings to plumb the filter adapter be sure to check out #340-0038.
Racer can pick form the drop down menu the correct micron screen for the weight of oil that is run in the engine as well as the anodized finish.
