    The part number for a hydro filter (for a 2006 Super Z) is 783936, which is a Filtration Product Corp filter FPE30-25N. I was just on a Wix website and found that part FPE30-25N crosses to a WIX 51553. The Advance Auto Parts website shows a Wix 51553 is $10.99 and the Hustler dealer price for the FPC filter is $11.29. Not much of a difference in price,but if you're not near a dealer, might be something to consider.

    Thanks so much. I was just at the auto parts store getting gallons of oil, filters etc. I like a one stop shop for all filters instead of running to 5 different places.

    I took my (old) filter to NAPA yesterday and they crossed it to a NAPA p/n: 1551 witch is the same filter as you posted but 10 micron.

    I wonder what the OEM filter micron rating is? :confused:

    Was told by a Wix rep that the 768341 part number would be replaceable by the end of the year (Wix# 57371), but not currently available.

    Why does Hustler have an odd micron size?
    Per Wix website:
    http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/results.asp?PartNo=783936&Submit=Search
    The 783936 OEM filter crosses to the 51551 (10 Micron)
    Why would it not be better suited to use a 51552 to be closer to OEM spec of 25 micron?
    The 51551 is a very common filter. I can't imagine letting my hydro system run from 50 to 500 hours without a change. A 51553 would have better filtering but with less flow.

    Its what our system is designed to work with, I would stick with OEM spec for the best performance.
