I wanted to take a quick second to introduce myself. I'm brand new to the forum, but have been creepin around for some time learning so great things from some good people. My wife and I have a little hobby farm north of the US/Canadian border just outside of Vancouver in BC.
We recently acquired a Bolens G174, with the 2 Cylinder Mitsubishi KE 75 diesel motor. It will be speciffically used to help out where the bigger tractor just cant fit. First off with anything I do, I push the reset button, get everything fixed that needs it, and change all the fluids and filters. This unit needed very little fixing, but the filters have been a challenge.
I swapped out the fuel filter assembly with a new replaceable cartridge style unit. That was easy. The Air filter has lead to some unexpected challenges.
My air filter cannister measures 6 1/2" long, with an OD of 4 5/16", and an ID of 4 1/16"....The filter that is currently in there measures 6 3/8" long, with an OD of 3 1/2". The only filters I keep finding are the longer 7 3/8" filters with the white plastic fins attached to one end of the filter.
I saw the sticky "Wisconsin Air Filter Interchange, are these 4 1/4" tall filters my go to filter now? Do I swap out my original cannister with something like what I see on the Kubota B7000? Or would somebody here maybe have the part number to the filter I should be using.
I attached a photo of our little unit
Thanks for any and all of your help, Chris
