I am attempting to do some maintenance on my late fathers Massimo MSU 400 that he bought back in 2015. It has had numerous issues over the years and needless to say it is by far the most unreliable thing on 4 wheels that I have ever experienced in my life. That being said I would like to change the oil on it, and I cannot find an oil filter that cross references the stock filter number that will work. So far I have tried a Napa/wix 1394 that cross referenced to the Fram 4967 that was shown as the original cross reference.
Both filters will immediately start to leak oil as soon as the machine is started up. I do have an actual Massimo filter ordered from Amazon which is 15200-F12-0000 and that one has no cross reference to be found.
Does anyone know any filter brand and number that will work on this engine other than the stock filter? I don’t want to continue buying filters only to have them not work and waste more oil in the process.

Hi all. I'm new to the site. A few years ago I bought a used Massimo. Recently I've had a issue driving above 25mph. The engine won't go any faster. In fact it seems to sputter and hesitate. The whole engine shakes. I've changed air filter.oil,oil filter, throttle cable oil/air cooler,and carburetor and still no luck. I was wondering, could it be the fuel pump. Should I invest in an electric fuel pump? I'm just not sure. It starts fine and revs while in neutral. Any advice would be great. Thank you
I've been looking for a cross to a filter from a known manufacturer since I bought this machine. Both from a cost standpoint, and a known quality standpoint. The factory filters are just plain black with no markings. Due to price point on these machines I would assume that the factory filter would be made as.cheap as possible
I have not had any real luck finding a cross, so In doing my first oil change I decided to cut the factory filter and see what is inside.
I don't have a fancy oil filter cutting set up, so I just clamped it in the vise and went to town with my portaband. Excuse the rough cuts and metal shavings.
Looks like a good quality filter, plenty of pleats/surface area. Metal endcaps. Excuse the crushing, that's from the vise/strap wrench to remove it.
And a spring in the bottom of the can to keep the top silicone anti-drainback pressed in place.
Overall looks like a surprisingly good quality filter for a no name. At least we can know that using the factory filters on these should be acceptable. I feel better about paying $10 for this filter at least knowing it's good quality.
