OK ...what's the difference between engine oil filters and hydraulic filters?

What is the difference between engine oil filters Baldwin, Stratopore whatever and a Donaldson hydraulic filter? We currently use P551551 Donaldson's on our hydraulic equipment. We buy them super cheap and have access to the filter bases for multi-filter set-ups....

Flow and filter size mainly I think, I don't know which is more viscous engine oil or hydraulic fluid, even some flow variances in hyd fluid, you would have to look close at the specs of filter under consideration to know if it should work.

if you go to Baldwin/Wix/Donelson etc. web sites plug in a cross reference number it sometimes pops up what other applications a given filter can also be used for, I know the Baldwin site does I did it yesterday, the filter number I checked from my truck shows it works as both a oil and hydraulic filter on certain different mfrs, and different pieces of equipment, also those vendors have tech groups you can call or email who could tell you if a particular filter would work for Diesel engine oil
