    Oil would be 30 weight changed every 50 hours. You can use purolator oil filters instead of the over priced kawasaki filter. Let me know if you want the purolator oil filter part number.

    Hydro system should be changed once each season.

    Sure when my father gets back with the trailer I will run out and check the part number for the oil filter for you. The hydro filter im not sure about because each manufacturer uses there own filter. Your best bet would be to call your local Write dealer and give them your model and serial number and get the hydro filter from them.

    Here you go. This oil here is VERY good synthetic oil for air cooled lawnmower engines. With this oil you should easily be able to go to 100 hours before you need to change the oil. There is enough oil in a gallon jug for 2 oil changes.


    Edit the purolator pure one oil filter for your engine is PL14476. I recommend this filter for 3 reasons.

    1. It filters better than most other filters on the market due to a better media used inside the filter
    2. It flows very good for unobstructed oil flow through your engine
    3. It is a high quality filter with an anti drainback valve

    Purolator doesn't make oil. They only make filters. The Purolator Pure One filter is about as good as you can get. You should do a search.

    ProStreet, Just an FYI the oil for Kawi is Mobile 1 Synthetic 10W 30 . And I agree about the oil filters, I bought a fram my last oil change and it works just as well as a filter from a dealer.
