Going by the dealer to get the filter (AM131054 for serial #'s north of 20001), can't find the WIX part# (57103) locally.
My machine calls for motor oil to be used for the hydrostat. JD Plus 50, 15w40 or 0w40 synthetic, or just SAE 15w40, is what the manual recommends. Dealer wants $18/gal for 15w40, and he said triple that for the synthetic (LMAO!)! Thinking of using the same oil I use in the tractor, Delvac 5w40 full synthetic. Anyone have reason not to? I've got 1054hrs on her. Hydrostat seems a little louder this year, than last.
