Oil Filter Dilema on Kohler Command Engines

This is an email I just sent to an ebay seller regarding a pack of 12 oil filters for Briggs, Kohler, Kawasaki etc. Any comments from you folks.

Hi -- I repair power equipment. I have used one of these filters on the last three Lawn Tractors I have serviced. They all had Kohler Command engines. I am very concerned as each engine called for 2 qts of 10w30 oil. I put in the two qts and each engine read very high on the dipstick like there was too much oil in the engine. This was after I started the engines and checked for leaks. I had been using oil filters from Rotary previous and never had this problem. Please respond with you comments.

How did you get the old oil out of the engine? Could some of the old oil have remained in the engine?

I use a vacuum pump and then check it with a coat hangar to make sure it is empty. The dipstick shows perfectly clean new oil. I am concerned that the oil is not making it into the oil filter.

I think its the wrong oil filter & it holds less oil than the old filter. I would think if it was much smaller, you'd notice a size difference which would make my thought invalid. But, I'd size them up & see if there is a difference. When you're dealing with just two quarts, a little over will make a big difference sometimes.
