Ever wonder about getting your oil filter for your Mercury 4-Stroke somewhere else besides Mercury. Especially if the local Mercury dealer doesn't keep what you need in stock. After a little research the Mercury filter matches to a Yamaha filter since it is a Yamaha powerhead. The Yamaha number, found online at the Yamaha website, matches a Yamaha motorcycle filter also found online. Interesting, and you can match that online to any number of after market filters. I went to CarQuest who had a filter instock. Jim

Great! Care to share the research results ~ what is the part number?
Barney posted 08-14-2004 09:12 PM ET (US)     Profile for Barney  Send Email to Barney     
Ok here it goes:
Yamaha 5GH-13440-00-00
Purolator ML 16819
CarQuest 85358
Sierra 18-7914

Each of the above filters will probably have a different length. But the diameter is the same. Put in the Yamaha # into Google. That is real interesting. I have other numbers but am solid on the above.

Other filters worth a check:

WIX 51358
AC 2057
NAPA 2358
Fram PH 6017A and 6607
AMSOIL SMF 103

Anybody know how this could affect the Warranty?

The 60 HP Yamaha 4-Stroke uses the Yamaha #5GH-13440-00-00. Looks like the same filter on the smaller Mercury/Yamaha 4-Strokes. Jim

I purchased my oil filters for my 90 hp Mercury 4-stroke directly thru Mercury online, and received it within several days. Cost was $9.24 plus shipping. Buy the spark plugs elsewhere since they are too pricey on their plugs.

Donzi, Not really staying on topic but how did your plugs look, what was their condition? I found them online for $3.10, but I have bought them yet. Jim

Barney: my plugs looked fine, but I replaced them since it was running rough around 1500 rpms. I had it serviced under warranty and they adjusted the idle mixture screws in the carburetors and now it runs much better. Hard to synchronize four carburetors and the mechanics dread the task. Next motor will be fuel injection for sure. Regarding spark plugs, seems like your price is good. Mercury's price is lower from the time I checked before and is now $3.21 which is very reasonable.

I found them [spark plugs? oil filter?] at [an online retailer] for $5.99 each.

Barney (jim) is simply too good of an engineer to except no as an answer.

Oil filters for my 2004 Mercury 225-HP EFI four-stroke motors are over $30 from Mercury and only a dollar or two cheaper from Yamaha. This is an unreasonable price for something that can be manufactured for almost nothing. Is there an aftermarket equivelent filter?
