@Coldweather86, thanks for your reply, it got me looking into this further. The WIX is rated at 21 micron nominal. I'm not an expert but I think "nominal" means it will capture 50% of the particles that are 21 Micron in size. Less efficient for small particles, more efficient for larger particles.
Looking at the Mahindra filter it says on the can "13 MICRON FILTER". That's probably a nominal rating - I cannot locate specs for the Mahindra filter on the web.
Also, if the Mahindra filter is a 13 micron filter, the flow rate through the filter material would be less and that might explain why it is taller than the 21 micron filters that are generally available.
I'm thinking that maybe I'll wait for the OEM Mahindra filter to be available. Oil change is not urgent for me right now.
I have a couple of other small diesels (Yanmar) in a boat and a tractor and I've learned that they like clean oil.
Thats great information, good stuff to learn. Thanks BillB

For what its worth I changed my oil over the weekend using the WIX 51626 from O'Reily's. It threads fine but as many have noted it is a shorter filter.

Just to keep the confirming data coming, my dealer's source for the WIX 51626 filter was Diesel Freak. I'm changing out my break-in oil tomorrow or Friday before weekend rides; I will use the WIX 51626.

I see Sherwood Tractor has the Mahindra filters back in stock. Price has doubled since last availability. At $13 per I'll probably just use Wix from here on out.

Yeah I stand corrected.

Speaking of Sherwood; does anyone have a current discount code? I tried save10 and tractor5 but neither will work for me.

Looking to buy
Also as stated earlier wix 51324 work as well and they are a bit longer , have a bit higher bypass valve setting @ 16 psi ....The wix 51626 BP is @ 8-11 psi ... With synth oil better & more filtration with the 51324 ....microns ratings are the same for both filters @ 21 ...remember there are a bunch of different ways they figure that micron rating.. mahandra claims 13 micron on theirs,but no one knows how they came to that number .I went with wix 51324 ....
