fuel filter is in the canister on top of the motor behind the "Powerstroke" plastic thing. I've found in my searching that the baldwin filter has a 7 micron filtration rate, which seems to be the best out there. The baldwin number is PF7698

The NAPA air filter is the 6637 filter. It's big but it will fit. I farm myself and the filter cleans good and has enough intake to handle the constsant lugging.
