Spin On Oil Filter STC kits for
E-series TCM emgines
Latest word is that
Lew doesn't make or carry "new" oil filter adapters anymore.
Note From Lew
Gage January 2005
I noticed on your site you posted that I no longer manufacture the
oil filter kits for the E Continental engine, which is true.
However I do offer a service for those finding one of these adapters
as a salvaged part. If one does find one of these the price should
not be over $100, since the salvage yard is not supplying anything
except the adapter body.
There is a hardware package consisting of studs made to my
specifications ( long 1/4 x 20 thread and heat treated to
150-165,000 PSI) which assure proper attachment of the adapter to
the engine. A gauge to confirm proper sealing of the adapter to the
oil check valve, paperwork package containing the installation
instructions and drawings and the STC and letter authorizing the use
of the STC and the necessary seals, gaskets and a CH-48109 filter.
If the adapter is in reasonably good condition (some look like they
were removed with a hammer and chisel) the charge for the above
including shipping is $440. If shipped to a Nevada address there
would be 7-3/4% sales tax ($7) on the new parts in the kit.
Also, if I could get 25 orders with
$300 deposit each I would produce a batch of new kits. Total cost
for a new kit would be $515 including shipping to any USA
