Our cub is in pieces but I just checked the filter with our bolt and we have exactly the same issue. I also have a filter I got from CASE fifteen years ago when the tractor was running, and that filter fits just fine on our bolt. So there mist be a problem with a recent production run of WIX filters.
Thanks so much cjack! Finally someone sees what I am talking about! When I let Steiner know what the problem was they only would say that I have the correct filter. Maybe their run of Wix filters for this model are defective. Did you let them know? I could get a refund if I sent it back but as the shipping and effort (boxing, ect) would be more than the $10.45 I paid it is not worth it and will be my loss. The clerk I spoke with on the phone was pleasant but, evidently, could do nothing more. This is after I have spent close to $1k in parts in the last 2-3 weeks! Please tell them that you had a problem also!
