I'd have to look it up again, but there was a Wix equivilant to this Kohler filter, but NAPA and Carquest got almost as much money for it as the OEM filter.

Tractor Supply Company seems to have the best price on genuine Kohler filters.

For my Kohler it's the same filter as used on an early Neon . . . a shortened FL-400A.

I'm not sure of the exact number, but this may be it:

Between a Napa Gold/Wix and a Kolher-branded one, I use the former at half the price.

I use STP S3512 gotten at Autozone for a little more than 3 bucks. Others that fit are Wix 51056, Purolator L35310, Fram PH 8172, AC PF2210. Longer filter is Purolator L10241, Wix 51348.

A PH8A fit my Kohler just fine. I run the supertech version.

There is a bunch of other threads on this, but the motorcraft FL400S (or x-ref of your choice) is the same diameter, gasket and threads as the kohler OEM, just 2X as long. I run the napa gold or carquest premium version on my kohler command 20hp (horiz shaft)

We are the cheapest on WIX/NG filters. The 51056 is $5.19 each, and the 51348 is $2.79 each.

HOLD IT!!! My kohler oil filter has a 35psi bypass valve. The filter is short, but I found a longer version with roughly the same bypass valve setting. It is a Napa Gold 1342. Purolator makes a pureone the crosses to the napa also. The longer version is easier for me to change in my genset.

Er.....just rechecked, 1342 has 16psi bypass. Close enough for me.
