Hydrostatic Question

Recommended Posts

beuce
I have a Homelite T-16 with this type of Hydro Drive.

The filter pictured, is this just a typical automotive style filter? Any recommendations on which type/brand I should use. Also which hydro unit is this (Vickers, ect)? Thanks Brian

Brian There has been major talk about these Filters, Some people say to buy Simplicity for the reason that way you know your getting the right micron's ect... and others use other brands Wix, Napa, Etc... I just bought the Simplicity Filter for my 7016H.. So the choice is up to you..

A recent thread went into great detail about this, tossing brands, micron filtration etc, back and forth. The general feeling seemed to be that Napa and Wix were the best "auto-type" of filter but why risk your hydro to a non-OEM filter. In the end I bought the Simplicity filter. Here in SC, the filter retailed for $14.95, a bit pricey if you ask me. By the way, you have a Sunstrand hydro, it looks identical to the one in my Simplicity 7016-H. Brian

Napa filters are made by Wix.They are the same filter just different numbers, drop the Wix prefix and you have the Napa number. Baldwin is another good filter. Just do not buy the cheap boxstore lines Fram is one of these a one size fits most and a big no/no for these tractors

In a pinch on a Sunday evening,I used a Purolator PER 1A on my 712H.That's an oil filter used on Ford products for about 900 years or so.:) It's still on there 3 years later,with no problems.FWIW

I'm all for buying the OEM parts. They are alittle costly, but in the long run will save you money and hassle. Why take that chance with experimenting with aftermarket parts.
