    You guys using Wix filters, do you use the Wix HD air filters too. I was looking up the part #'s for the 27HP Kohler (cv740) and the dimensions are slightly larger.

    I am thinking about just using the Pro-Long air filters from J-Thomas and use the Wix oil, and fuel filters. The Wix filters do look a lot better made, The inner filter has the wire mesh around it unlike the Kohler and pro-long filters. I'm just worried if they are really compatible. If the dimensions are off then the other properties might be different too.

    Here is the inner filter http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/ResultsPart.asp?PartNo=42985

    The outer filter http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/ResultsPart.asp?PartNo=46438&Submit=Search

    The dimensions on the outer wix filter is Height: 10.750
    Outer Diameter: 4.160
    Inner Diameter Top: Closed
    Inner Diameter Bottom: 2.360

    From what I have found in my research the Kohler and prolong filter is 4"OD X 2-13/32"ID X 10-1/2"H

    I just seen this one on-line (it has the right replacement #) and it has different dimensions too. It is closer the the Wix filter though. I do not know what brand this filter is http://www.jackssmallengines.com/air_koh.cfm You have to scroll down 14 filters.

    Bump.... It doesn't matter if you have the 27HP Kohler. Anyone using CV17-CV26 or CV675-745 do you use the Wix HD air filters?
