Recently, El Reno Aviation closed their doors and auctioned off all items in
their inventory including many F&M Oil Filter Adapters. The oil
filter adapters are now being sold at very low prices on the internet
and some F.B.O.s.
BUYER BEWARE... IF IT SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS!
These adapters have been on the shelf for nearly 10 years. The oil
filters have exceeded the manufacturers shelf life. Many of the adapters
have corrosion due to a high moisture storage environment. Most do not have
the correct gaskets. F&M made a change in gaskets and machining
approximately 5 years ago. Without a thorough inspection by F&M personnel,
F&M WILL NOT SUPPORT THESE ADAPTERS. We charge $200.00 for a thorough
inspection. Request for new paperwork or gaskets will be compared to the
serial numbers sold during auction.
