No oil filter, Really!?!

Just started changing the oil on my new to me JD l100. It's got the 17hp Intek single cylinder. I got the oil filter I thought it was supposed to have (am125424) but when I went looking for it I could't find a filter on it anywhere. So again, "No oil filter, Really!?!" Who's idea was that?

You bought this riding mower but didnít know that it lacks an oil filter?

Re: No oil filter, Really!?!

most small engines do not have an oil filter, they rely on having the oil changed frequently

Re: No oil filter, Really!?!

Quite a few years ago I was looking at some new Craftsman mowers. There were two identical models sitting right next to each other, same year/engine/deck/etc. One had a filter and the other had a filter delete... (a cap that fit inplace of the filter)

Go figure.

What is really funny is that the cap is more expensive than an oil filter. You can buy the threaded nipple to take the place of the cap and then be able to install an oil filter.

I used to refurb L100 Series mowers and most of the ones I bought still had the original filter.

Actually, I thought it did but in all the bother I think my minds eye mistook the starter for the oil filter. Eh, you can only see it good with the hood up. Can't be too upset though, I've gone thru the whole thing now and it works great (except for doing wheelies but that's another post. I'm working on it.) and the guy even transported it to my house for me. As long as I keep the oil changed, it will be fine.

Hey rayjay, is there any possibility I can do something like what you said to my engine and add an oil filter? It's a 2005 17hp single cylinder Intek.

For a lot of people, that's about a full season of mowing. It takes me about 20 minutes and I mow about 20 times per season if it's dry (and it usually is in August). That's 6 hours and 40 minutes for the season.

Seems that I recall that the manufacturers used to recommend changing the oil every 25 hours or once per season, whichever came first.

Your engine has no provision for an oil filter. It doesn't even have an oil pump. It's lubed strictly by splash. You can go to the JD parts site and look at the exploded views of the engine of the L100. Then look at the L108 exploded views and you will see that the sump has the area for a filter and there is an oil pump also.

What IS funny, is that the L100 exploded view for the crankcases shows a sump with no mounting boss for the oil filter but the parts page does list a nipple and the oil filter. Just a screw up.

Re: No oil filter, Really!?!

Best case, if your motor is in good shape, source a good oil pan with pump and filter attachment, and cam that has the provision for the oil pump drive, if your cam doesn't have it already, then your good to go.
