    It depends on what kind of engine you have, the one shown on the video is almost universal on all Briggs and Stratton Engines, which is the Quantum.

    You might have another motor, maybe a Toro propertary or a Honda or etc. So check with your manual or go to a Small Engine Shop near your area. To check what engine you have take a look at your lawn mower it should have a sticker or a plated label with your engines info. Hope this helps.

  2. No Oil on this type of Filter? When I bought my Troy Bilt Mower, to did not look like there was Oil on the filter but after reading the Briggs & Stratton Engine Manual that came with my mower, it mentions coating the same type of filter you just put in, with a coat of Oil. How is that done? Or is that not needed for this type of Filter? Thanks. Great Videos!

  3. Thank you! I hadn't cleaned my filter since I bought my lawn mower, so this video made everything 100 times more clear about maintenance.
