    oil filter length

    I change oil in several of my friends mowers and I was wondering if it's ok to use the short filter 2 1/4" in place of the 3 to 3 1/2" filters? I ordered a case of filters and they sent me the short filter. Thanks to all who may reply.

    Re: oil filter length

    Other than a small oil volume change it doesn't matter what filter you use. I don't even stock the long filters any more because most of the mowers that I work on have clearance issues with the long filters.
