    part no. 1-513211
    does anyone have a cross ref number for this filter. Couldn't find it on hastings site. is there any reason not to use a lube oil filter on this? I found a LF 157 works for my husky zturn. it is after all motor oil used for the hydro system.

    Wix number is 51374

    Try leaving off the leading 1 when looking it up. Exmark used to not have all those "1-" things in front of their numbers.

    ok, well the wix no. crosses over to a hastings LF157. i just talked to an engineer at hastings and he said don't use that filter because it has a bypass valve that may be the wrong pressure and it's a 18 micron/not 10 micron filter.

    I can't exactly give you the reason but know it is a very bad thing to use an oil filter for your hydro. Something about one the oil is pushed through the other pulled through.

    Exmark is owned by Toro if that helps you any.

    I know at this point I can't use an oil filter, that is why I'm looking for a hydro filter cross number so I can go to the local auto part sore instead of the exmark dealer. I found a couple aftermarket ones online, but know name no part number ones.

    Call Power Equipment Warehouse (sponsor here, icon at the top of the page, find phone number off the web site). Give them your Exmark part number, and they will get you a proper filter for your hydro system. They have supplied many filters for me.

    Delivery is only a couple of days, UPS to your door.

    "he said don't use that filter because it has a bypass valve that may be the wrong pressure and it's a 18 micron/not 10 micron filter...."

    Bypass pressure only matters if your filter is clogged.
    How do you know your filter is 10 micron?
    Check out NAPA. Then look at the last 4 digits of the number compared to the Wix# posted above.
    There are quite a few hydro filters that have automotive applications.

    not only the bypass but it has a anti drain valve and the hydro system sucks the fluid through the filter, where the oil system pumps it. I know for a fact the exmark filters are 10 micron. all the oil filters that fit are 18-25 micron.

    How much time have you wasted looking for another filter? You are so worried that they wont be the equal of the Exmark one, why dont you just bite the bullet and get an Exmark one?
