    What Kohler? Do you have the Kohler #'s available? If so I can tell you where to find the oil filters.

    I bought a Napa,it was 10 bucks.How much was the kohler filter?I would stay away from Fram,buy a Wix,baldwin,or purolator.the frams are known to come apart,instantly frying your motor by pushing filter media thru it.The Napa and Big A filters are both Wix in a different box.I'd like to pay around 5 bucks tops for a filter,thats what it costs for my trucks.These 25 hp's dont require a special filter,but we get charges a(special) high price.Let us know if u find some for around 5 bucks<p>----------<br>John D<br>

    My 25 Kohler takes a Purolator L10241 ($3), Purolator PureOne PL10241 ($6) or Wix 51348. I use the PureOne. My advice, stay away from Fram.<br>

    Ah yes,, the search for &quot;chep&quot; filters. If you save $1 on a filter and you change every 50 hours that 2 cents an hour you have saved. And if your bargain filter is not doing as good a job removing particulates from the oil/air/fuel how much are you losing in incresed engine wear? If you can find a name brand filter that will work you are probably ok, but the no-name filters are probably a very poor way to save money in the long run.
