    Hello. Does any one have the correct types. I was using one brand that they don't carry any more at the store I purchase at, and they couldn't cross reference them. Thanks. Fram?

    you can go to any oil filter brand website and they will have a cross reference for kawasaki 40965-2078 I think Fram's is PH4967.
    went to my dealer to get a replacement filter for my 19hp Kawasaki and it was a Luber-Finer it cost 9.97 so I got one, a few days later I happened to be at Auto Zone and they have a filter called Valucraft for 1.99. I looked at it and thought it looked just like the dealer filter so I took it home and what do you know it is the exact same filter, same markings, cut them open and compared IDENTICAL the only difference is the one for 1.99 says product of USA and the dealers says Product of Mexico. I know where I will be getting filters from now on.

    I'm curious to know how you were able to measure the micron size that the 1.99 filter is able to filter down to compared to the original Kawi filter.
