Production: #2802 – Gold Sandwich Adapter. 


While I do put out all kinds of stories, behind the posts, production of parts marches on. Pictured below, a batch of #2802 Gold Sandwich Adapters, the fundamental part of a Group 2800 Heavy Duty Oil Cooling System.



The #2802 goes between the #2601 oil filter housing and the oil filter. In the picture above, you are looking at the side which contacts the oil filter.



Flipped over, this is the side which contacts the #2601 filter housing. The two blue fittings go to and from the Heavy duty oil cooler.



Above, 26 of them being assembled in my workshop. They come with the AN fittings installed, and I hand assemble the bypass valve which is internal to the part. We have made these for more than 10 years, they are long proven to be excellent parts on hundreds of engines.




About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at and in more than 50 magazine articles.
