Kohler Generator filters
My local shop wants $16.44 per air filter and $13.28 per oil filter for my Kohler generator. Is that high or par for the course?

Is there a cross reference to a national brand that I can get for less?

(Kohler 7C M21)

Belay that order number 1....

Discount Auto Parts cross-referenced them as follows:
Oil - Kohler 277233 to Fram PH3600
Air - Kohler 47-083-04 ($16.44) to Purolator A23340 ($6.29)

I have a single cylinder Kohler engine that sees a lot of dusty use. It uses the same air filter as my 7000w Kohler generator, round about 8" diameter. I got foam sleeves from the Kohler dealer that can be oiled, washed and reused. I haven't had to replace the paper filters in 3 years, was changing the one every other month.

Best bet is gonna be CW on bot the Air and Oil Filter unless you have a Cummins dealer close by. The Oil Filters can be cross referenced, but the Air filters are a unique part.

gen set filters
try NAPA just replaced my filters and they had the correct parts. no sponge outer cover just a paper filter. oil was 8 and air was 6 . need to know the model for the set . my gen set is a nhe or nhel for parts. don't know what a Kohler would be, look on the tag. that is how he looked the parts up.
