    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you have any hydraulic or engine oil filter nubers other than the dane's. Surely there's a better filter I can get a little closer to home. I have a 17 hp kaw. on my super surfer, but mostly interested inthe hydro filters...
    thanks

    Bottlefed, I don't know about engine filters, but I went through every single filter at O'reillys trying to find a filter that would work for the hydros. Not one of them did and I had to go to Smittys. :mad:

    (I hate Smittys)

    I had a NAPA look cross-ref the numbers for my Exmark. They have in stock both the oil and hydro filters. Autozone also sells them.

    Makes it easier to replace a filter when I can grab one on the way home instead of spending an hour driving in a direction where I dont do any work!

    my thoughts exactly, but I can't get a napa, oreilly's, autozone, advanced auto, or carquest that can find my numbers...

    I've had good luck cross referencing filters at Wix website...at wixfilters.com. Let us know if it works.

    I have been told that it is very important to get the same micron filter as the origanal filter. A cheaper filter may not have the same filtration and not clean the hydro fluid as good. If possable check to see if the filter is a 10 micron for hydro's. Most oil filters are 30 - 60 micron filters. And Im not knocking wix or other filter brands,, what i meant is if you find a filter that fits ( same thread and size) make sure of its a hydro and not a regular oil filter
