    I'm having some difficulty unscrewing the oil filter on the Kohler Courage 15 HP engine on my Mini Fastrak because there is not enough room for my hand to manually turn the filter. Is there an oil filter wrench at the auto supply store that would fit? I hate driving to my Hustler dealer 22 miles away for such a simple problem. Thanks for any tips.

    I have absolutly no idea where your "oil" filter is but was told to push a screw driver through the filter then loosen useing the screw driver as leverage. May make a mess but at least you dont need a special wrench for it.
    I havent had a need to do it myself but thought I'd pass that on!

    something I have used in the past. I take a small strip of a shop rag and tie it tight around the filter. Then I put the screw driver btwn the rag and filter. Give it one turn around to tighten up the rag to oil filter. then turn.
