I have found that the JD parts for routine maintenance aren't that much more than generic. You also know you have the correct filter. As far as oil you can use what you want as long as the viscosity is right. Do you have any manuals for the 275?

backwoods:

 

Sorry, posted this and then realized I had jumped to conclusions too soon. The manual I have is for the older tractors, 240, 260, 265, and 285. Couldn't figure out hos to delete it so just edited it.
