    I need an oil filter for my Fastrak 18/52...coming up on 20 hours for the first oil change.

    Any suggestions/opions on whether I should stick with Honda or try to cross? The Owner Manual doesn't give the Honda P/N for the filter...the filter on the machine appears to be Honda P/N 15400-ZJ1. I can't find any Honda filters with that number. A buddy tells me not to cross the Honda filter because of issues having to do with pressure. The honda filters are designed for certain required pressures, not all filters my be truely equal?

    Also any opinions on motor oil would be appreciated!

    Thank you

    BobBraun,
    The # you have on the filter is the correct Honda part #
    It is available from any Honda engine dealer, or from your Hustler dealer.
    I would suggest the use of the OEM filters.
    As for oil, your owners manual states what viscosity is best for your conditions, and I would stay with a quality name brand oil.
