Air/Oil Separator

Postby Ultrapilot1 » Tue Jan 09, 2018 12:43 pm

Has anyone installed an Airwolf Minisep? Just curious to know if it solved the greasy belly syndrome. I looked into the M20 but the company is now out of business. Airwolf bought the rights to the Walker.

I did the M20 and it seemed to solve it.

The RMJ-Aero seems to be a clone of the M20. Worth checking out, as the M20 has been effective for me.

Whoops - not for certified aircraft for some reason.

Be careful if you are operating the Continental Diesel engine.
Incorrect oil/air separator can cause cankshaft seal failure.
EASA AD 2010-0020 refers.

We had one late last year resulting in engine failure and forced landing. It happened shortly after take off so a return to the airfield was possible but a close run thing.

Anyone know off hand which one of the Airwolf Minisep models is for the IO-360-M1A DA-40?

Thanks
