BC708-H Oil Filter Adapter (Homebuilt)
The BC708-1 has been especially designed for Maule STL aircraft. It permits the replacement of the OEM oil screen, the horizontal mount AC-brand oil-filter adapter, or other "remote" oil filtration systems. Machined from a solid billet of aluminum for strength and reliability, B&C Oil Filter Adapters have been used extensively in the rigorous world of aerobatic aircraft for many years. Its uniquely-angled geometry clears the tach cable and oil cooler return line, while also negotiating the limited space between the engine and firewall found on many airframes. And unlike a firewall-mounted remote oil filtration system, there are no hoses to purchase (or replace) with the B&C Oil Filter Adapter, nor is there a need to reinforce the firewall to support the oil filter mounting bracket.
The BC708-1 weighs only 2.19 lbs. (with a CH48108 filter), and is available in both STC/PMA (O-235 through IO-720 series) and Homebuilt versions. Both feature the same quality workmanship that go into every B&C product, and ship ready to install, with new mounting hardware, gasket, and a Champion 48108 filter.
This Oil Filter Adapter puts the filter at the 6:30 position, and will require the use of a 2.5 spacer on engines equipped with a mechanical fuel pump on the lower left-hand pad.
