    My eXmark 48" wb has a 15HP kaw kai series engine. Anyone know the PureOne part number for my engine?

    Do you want an exact replacement filter or one that can work?
    I run a FL-400s (motorcraft) that is 51516 in WIX and PL20195 for the pure one. WIX lists an oem replacement as 51394, pure one is PL14476. Napa filter(which are WIX) you just drop the first number of the wix.

    The above mentioned filters have gasket dimensions that are oversize-
    Gasket 2.734"OD 2.430"ID

    The correct size is-
    Gasket 2.475"OD 2.173"ID

    Their length is about 4.8" vs 3", so you do need more room.
    A Puro (P)L14477 has the correct size gasket and is about 3.4" long, if you want an oversize filter with the correct size gasket.

    The filter land where the gasket meets is not that small that you have to be that exact. With the FL-400s on my 15hp Kai, the outside of the gasket is exactly the same size as the outside of the filter land.

    I don't argue that your oversize filters will most likely screw on and not leak.
    I do think you should mention what the differences are however. The end user can then decide if they want to go that route.
    Since the Kaw filter is also used on a bunch of cars, a user could possibly assume that because a non standard filter fits his Kaw, it automatically fits his car. It probably will, but let the user be informed of possible pitfalls.

    I just bought the PL14477 for my 25 Kawasaki to do my first 8 hour oil change. It has the proper LB. by-pass spring in it too. It looks to be a better choice than the OEM to me.
