Oil Filter for LT 1000

I hope you craftsman folks don't mind this ole JD guy asking a favor. I was asked by my neighbor if I would mind changing the oil and spring maintenance on her Craftsman LT1000. It's got a Briggs and Stratton Intek 20HP v-twin and the oil filter on it is a B&S filter too, trouble is in this small town of ours all I got to choose from to get a filter, unless I want to drive an hour, is NAPA and AutoZone. I'm not real sure they will even carry the B&S filter so was wondering if anyone of you uses something other than B&S that would work. The B&S # is 492932 and I can't seem to find a cross reference anywhere thats worth a hoot to tell me some other choices.

Thanks in advance
Jim

Jim,

I just changed my 2 Craftsman generators, and my 15.5hp Kohler powered LT1000 with Napa Gold filters. They are a good quality filter and I would recommend them without reservation.

Jim go to Napa and get a WIX filter. The WIX filter number is #57035 thats the cross reference for Briggs #492932.

Angry What a freakin mess !

Well today I finally went and found the right oil filter at a TSC store, but the fun came when I went to drain the oil. Why in the world Craftsman decided to put the end of the drain so far back against the engine it makes it hard to get to I'll never understand. I look at the end of this drain tube and theres a cap on it, so I figure ok, I put a piece of tinfoil under it and fashion it like a funnel down into the drain pan so it won't pour all over the frame. I pull the cap and nothing. Huh !. So I get to looking closer and realize the cap is attached to a another piece of plastic which twists off and then the oil will drain. Course this is really up against the engine now. So I push the tin foil as far as it will go and pull the plastic thing off and the tin foil comes with it and the oil runs out all over the stinking frame down onto the mower deck and ground.

After spending another hour cleaning the mess up along with the tractor, I told the Mrs. this is the last time I volunteer to help a neighbor out.

Jim,

Must be a B&S thing... My 15.5hp Kohler single has a pipe that extends out at a slight back angle about 3" past the frame. On the end is a 90 degree down spout with a screw-in plug. Oil changing is pretty clean.

Get the dimensions of the pipe and go to your local hardware store. Buy the right "plumbing parts" and make your job easier and cleaner.

I have the same problem when I drain the oil from my GT5000 with the 25HP Kohler...The engineer that designed that setup had his head up somewhere that the sun doesn't shine.....makes it hateful to change oil
