Something is wrong!
July 2, 2018
My engine: B&S 286H770165E1
It is supposed to use a 492932S B&S Filter.
The filter I got from Amazon (seller is Amazon) screws on a half a turn and that's it.
From B&S Engine Manual
3.5” filter: 491056
2.25” filter: 492932
From B&S Engine Parts Catalog: 492932S
I also went to several small engine parts web sites and they all list 492932S as the oil filter for this engine.
The mounting thread size for all these filters I've listed is 3/4"-16
So - there is something wrong with the thread of the filter I got. Also the label on the filter is gray not yellow.
I bought one (492932S) from Lowe's, see third picture. It went on perfectly! I then tried the Amazon purchased one again and it will not go on more than about a rotation. The threads look fine but obviously are different than the same part from Lowe's. Beware.
