There are two Kohler oil filters that will fit this engine, The short version is # 52-050-02 and the long version is # 277233. You should only use 10W30 oil in this engine due to the hydraulic lifters.

WIX makes NAPA Gold and CarQuest Blue filters. (identical except for the paint job)
For a NAPA filter, use the last 4 digits of the Wix#
For a CarQuest filter, replace the first 2 digits of the Wix# with 85.
Example. Wix 51348 becomes CarQuest 85348 or NAPA Gold 1348.
