Automotive Oil Filter w/Anti Drain Back Ok?

I seen a landscaper's Briggs V-Twin using Mobil1 M1-209 (PT Cruiser Turbo) oil filter. What I liked was the added length as mine is a pain to grab or get a band wrench onto.

So I looked it up and see it has anti-drain back. I also seen an old forum post speaking of how it added 1/4 quart.

Just though I would ask here before doing anything.

Thanks

Yeah, it will work fine. Ya want the anti-drainback feature. Most oil filters nowadays use an anti-drainback setup.
I have switched to Fram # PH3614 (which is the longer unit) 'cause it's got the gripper stuff on the end, which makes fer easy-on, ez-off. Personally, I am not a big fan of Fram for use on my vehicles, but that's another story...

Most any name brand filter that crosses to briggs # 491056 (long) or 492932s
( short) will do. It ain't a race motor.

More oil capacity is the reason I always use the biggest filter for my kohler motors. Thats always a good thing.

Mobil1 M1-209 Oil Filetr on My Intek

Thanks Guys, I put it on this PM. It added 1/3 Quart to the capacity.

I'm running Castrol HD 30 due to the generous amount of Zinc (ZMMD) contained there in.

Im not an engineer but I alaways figured a oil filter that the engine calls for would be best, especially in air cooled small engines. I may be wrong.

Not for the faint of heart eh?

Here is a link to one dissected. And if they go longer than they should and clog there is no bypass.

Here is a LINK to a cross reference of many filters that will fit a Briggs.

It still puzzles me how and why folks run dang molasses straight 30 weight oil in these engines, that some kind of thick oil from back in the days of loose-compression engines, I use that stuff as bar oil in my chainsaws and maybe in the heat of summer but how does that work in winter, I run synthetic 5w-30...

Ya mean you're actually gonna follow the manufacturer's recommendations? Say it ain't so!!

Most still call for 30wt above a certain temp!
I don't own any high dollar equip., but if I did, I would sure follow the motor mfg. recommendations!
I use straight 30 wt in most all of the equip. I repair, temps. permitting.

That's one big honkin' filter! I hope ya pre-filled it before install.

Yeh, well with the 30W designation anyways. I pulled the plug wires and spun it some first.
