    My newer big block, the 35 hp says to use Briggs filter #842921 but the actual filter that came with the mower was a Briggs #841023. I called Briggs and they said they would call back, but they didn't. Anyway the 841023 crosses over to a wix #57035. Why this new 35 doesn't require the same filter # as my 31hp Briggs I don't know. I think they need to get their act together. I usually run the OEM filter at least till the warranty runs out but even the dealers are stumped, or don't have one in stock. That's about all I can tell you with out using 4 letter words. I hope the engine is better than their customer support.

    Maybe this will confuse you....my '08 Ferris w/ 30hp Briggs Vanguard BB oil filter has one number 78-23545-0111 painted on the filter while the sticker attached says 112607FF2 and it crosses over to a Wix 57035 at O'Reilly's. Hope this helps.
