20 hour fluid change; not bad at all.....

Did my 20 hour yesterday and everything went fairly smooth , except the gravel imprints on my back haven't gone away yet.. Just a joke!! Be careful not to lose the washer that is on the oil pan bolt, mine must have stuck to the pan and fell off in to the drip pan. I didn't even notice it until I went to pour the oil into a recycle container , and there the little bugger was.....in the bottom of the drip pan. I almost went errorless, not quite.....

I'm fixing to do this too....actually a little over due.....using it and not finding time to get to this.

Using the cross-reference oil filter list, I did just today look for a filter....and couldn't find anything but the Mobil m1108 automotive. I ignored looking for Fram, I just do not want to use them. Has anyone actually used that filter? I bought it, hope it will work.

BTW - what fluid did you use on the rear end.

I used a kawi oil for the wet brake bought it at the dealer. I also used the kawi filter it was only $10. The front uses 10w40 motor oil.

Rear uses Tractor hydraulic 10 w. Cheaper at Tractor supply, but you have to buy 5 gallon, so I think I should have just paid the extra and gotten the little bottles.

I wouldn't use a FRAM filter in anything I own...they are very cheaply constructed. They use cardboard end caps that can become saturated with oil and fail, causing unfiltered oil to enter your motor. Buy a filter with at least steel end caps and a silicon anti-drain valve (pay a little more, but whats $4-$8 for piece of mind). There are a couple of good choices out there to be safe. I recommend WIX, AMSOIL, NAPA, Purolator, and K&N. All have steel end caps, silicon valve and use a tight filter pleat. I use WIX in both my Teryx and my quads.

The rear diff is nothing special hydralic/tractor fluid. The only problem I've heard (from customers) is that they are having a hard time find it in less than 1 gallon containers from tractor supply/repair places. Look for something that is compatable with John Deere J20(A,B,C,D) or CAT TO-2...if you need some help PM me I have it in quarts.

The front diff is whatever your putting in the motor. Kawi is SAE40 spec, so anything 40 weight will work, 0W-40, 5W-40, 10W-40

Capacity:
Engine 2.43 qts
Front 0.95 qts
Rear 1.06 qts

Hope this helps you guys out...

jcummins, I used the Mobil m1108 automotive filter too. It works.

I have not done the rear end yet cause I am waiting for my dealer to get the hydraulic/tractor fluid.

While I was doing it, I noticed that they forgot to connect the vent lines to the roll cage, and the gas tank vent line was resting on the header all cracked and melted! Yikes!

I am going to get a fire extinguisher on it before I go out again.

The Mobil filter does screw in place...I have it installed. Just not sure about the internals on the filter.

Mobil filters are made by Champion Labs (not related to Champion spark plugs). I'd say the filters are good as far as quality for the "performance" model. Look out for the "encore" model as these use fiber ends caps and they combined the anti-drain and bypass valves into one. Rumor is that the "performance filters are no longer manufactured and the "encore" are the standard. If this is the case, I'd be a little weary about the "encore".
