Anyone ever run an Amsoil bypass filter kit on their mower?

    I got one for my truck awhile back and it's pretty cool. I got the pre-oiler and bypass filter pair. I've heard of it being done to mowers, but I've never seen it before...

    It is on the Engine! And if I remember right the Bladerunners had two K&N bypass filters on there's. You would have to ask Wrebelmachine about that one to be sure!

    I added one to my dixie before they were standard.
    Yea, filters are expensive but cheaper than an engine! I'm running their filters on the hydros and the motor.

    How do you have the bypass filter setup on the hydro system. Pics if you can. For the bypass to be effective it has to be on the charged side of the hydro system. The return side has almost no pressure and very little, if any, oil would flow through the bypass filter.
