    Is there a way to convert a Kawasaki FC150V 5 hp 4 cycle engine without an oil filer and full pressure lubriaction to a version that has both? Kawasaki makes 3 versions of the same engine and only 1 of them is full pressure lubricated with an air filter.

    No, there's no way of doing that to my knowlege. Even if you could you would have more time and money in it then buying an engine with pressure lube. You could buy the pressure Kaw and keep your old engine as a back up.

    I had a 5.5 full presure kawi on a john deere, no oil filter. I paid something like $75 for an oil filter kit, 5 or 6 years ago. You take off a plate on the side of the engine and screw in the filter mount

    :) What spec engine do you have Example would be (FC150Vas10). If you can't find the spec what type of equipment is this on.

    This Kawasaki engine is on a toro push mower with personal pace.

    I need to know the spec on the engine, then I can tell you if a oil filter adapter will work,
