B&S Oil Filters
Well, the old JD SST18 has gone down the road. It's Rube Goldberg steering system crapped out one time too many. I am now riding and smiling on a brand new Scag Freedom Z :-)
So now I need to stock up on some consumables. The new machine has a 26 HP B&S Intek engine. I see that there are two flavors of oil filter available from B&S. The "standard" (p/n 5049 - the black one) and "extended life series" (p/n 696854 or 5076 - the yellow one). The machine has a yellow one from the factory.
Can anyone offer some insight into the difference between these filters?
