Thanks. Useful cross-reference. Is that essentially the same size as the Kohler OEM filter?

I see it on Amazon for $17.99 free shipping or other offers from $17.39??

Got an answer from Wix:
"We are aware of the height and outside diameter differences between Kohler 229678 and WIX 51064. This is not a new interchange and have never presented itself as an issue."

So I guess if there's room to install it, the Wix #51064 will work OK.

Hmmm... more from Wix. I had slightly edited their first response; the full note was:
"You should only use the filters that we list by application. We will not warranty or stand behind any filter not listed by application and that is the most important advantage. We are aware of the height and outside diameter differences between Kohler 229678 and WIX 51064. This is not a new interchange and have never presented itself as an issue."
I assumed that second part meant the Wix #51064 is good to go in place of the Kohler #229678.

But when I thanked them for that, I also mentioned I hadn't been able to find a Wix filter for the Kohler 8EOZ when searching with their tool by application. I thought that was just lack of knowledge on my part, but their response is:
"Yes sir,
It’s not listed, this means that we don’t recommend a filter for the application.
Have a wonderful Day!"
Which, when taken together, seems to mean the 51064 is a replacement for the Kohler 229678 but Wix neither recommends it nor warranties it for that application.

Ranger, yes, the Sierra filter is the same size as the Kohler filter. Funny you get a different price from Amazon. Maybe it's because we are Prime members.

Thanks. And yes, maybe that's it. Didn't know Prime prices might be lower, though; just thought it was about shipping costs.
