Champion CH48108-1 Oil Filter.
Champion oil filter elements are individually boxed, each with a plastic bag containing installation gaskets and instructions. This provides ample protection for these elements in storage and assures availability of necessary items for correct installation. Within the box, look for these features: Wrench pad with 1' hex, spot-welded to case, handles torque pressures far beyond normal removal or installaton requirements. Tough steel case provides exceptional strength to resist the high oil pressures which occur during cold engine starts. Meets or exceeds engine manufacturer specifications. High performance resin-impregnated cellulosic paper is manufactured to rigid specifications, assuring uniform density and porosity. The high quality media is preformed, convoluted and cured at a controlled temperature to form a durable, heat shock- and chemical-resistant filter medium. It provides both surface and scientific depth filtration because the oil flows through many layers of locked-in fibers. Filter material cannot migrate to clog engine oil passages or affect bearing surfaces. Heavy, corrugated steel center tube supports each convoluted pleat of the filter element and produces a substantially higher collapse-pressure rating, twice that of other similar filters. Maximum full-flow design, without interference from center-bolt oil filter assemblies, provides increased oil filtration each engine operating hour. Heavy-duty steel mounting plate is cemented, spot-welded and crimped to case. Even under abnormal oil temperatures and pressures, this primary, standard part of the filter assembly ensures freedom from troublesome oil leakage when the filter is installed according to the instructions printed on the case.
Country of Origin
4 x 4 x 6 inches
Shorter Installed Height: Shortened can height by approximately 1/2" with no impact to the filter media's performance. New Improved Wrench Flats: Provides: secure fit, proper torque and easier removal. Improved Spring: Replaced old "leaf" spring with an improved coil spring design. Thicker-Walled Can: Increased wall thickness for improved structural integrity. Stronger Center Tube: Redesigned center tube for added strength, with collapse pressures more than double the current design. New Inlet Design: Changed four-hole design to an eight-hole design for approximately 30% greater inlet flow area. Increased Lid Thickness: Increased thickness of seaming lid by approximately 35%, which subsequently provided for higher burst and impulse testing. Improved Baseplate Thread: Replaced cut thread with an improved rolled thread, without affecting tolerances on the thread dimensions.
