Can you buy a oil filter at Auto Zone to fit a 243 MF?

Do not want to get into a parts brand war, but!

There are no more important parts you can buy for your tractor than the oil and air and gas filters!!!

I would try to buy either dealer or Napa best brand and nothing else. If you order maybe Baldwin brand, they are very good filters.

Just my two cents - also use a good quality oil like shell rotella.

Carl, that comes up as a WIX 51515 or a Baldwin B2; both are pretty well regarded brands.

That filter is used in a bunch of different applications, so your local auto parts store should have it.

DH, I'm pretty sure that WIX makes NAPA filters. (I guess that was your point! Wink)

I have just always found (napa gold filters) to be a good quality filter. They may be made by wix, do not know as wix brand may have a top line
filter,

all I was saying is not to cheap out on your filters for the old tractor.

our local mf dealer had oil filters price very reasonable the last time I was in, he said they tried to do whatever they could to insure people changed the oil in their machines.

my old TO-35 has some type oil bath filter for the air, must work ok as it's been in use for around 57 years and still works,

I have taken it off a couple of times and washed it out with kerosene.

I always use Baldwin air, fuel and oil filters in my Dodge diesel truck, so far have had no problems.

I think a B2 is a standard Ford filter and also
fits some Kubota, like mine.
