Re: ATLANTA R members: need oil filter wrench (squish)

you can use a standard one from a car parts store, i had to try a couple of different brands until i was successful. <p>get one that has a pivot point at the end of the handle.

Re: ATLANTA R members: need oil filter wrench (dmvee70r)

what part stores do you see these??? <p>advance, autozone and o'reilly's didn't have anything close. <p>today i changed the upper and lower mounts, bled the brakes, removed the exhaust strap, but couldn't locate the dang wrench. <p>i think i'll take my oil and filter to jiffy lube!

Re: ATLANTA R members: need oil filter wrench (squish)

the correct torque spec for the oil filter cover, and any automotive oil filter, with well within the grasp of a normal, healthy, human adult male.<p>if you need a mechanical advantage to remove the filter cover, it was installed way way way way way beyond spec. (too much torque)<p>the risk here is that you have wrinkled or even broken the o ring seal.<p>all you need is to:<p>1. lubricate the o-ring with oil <p>2. hand-tighten the oil fiter, snugly, then just a tad more

Pretty tightly, but hand tight nonetheless. I find that I can never get it off without the wrench and even then it's difficult to budge at first (although it's just a standard 3/8" socket wrench, no extension or anything. <p>I wonder if my "tad" is a tad too much.

Re: ATLANTA R members: need oil filter wrench (Needsdecaf)

Joe, I hear you.<p>When I first started chainging oil, in the 60's, the rule was: spin on 'til it stops, then 1/4 turn. but taking them off we always jambed a large screwdriver in the can--since we would toss it anyway...<p>My experience with this cover is -- like the starfish on the oyster -- get a good grip, and apply firm and steady torque-- nothing happens for 20 seconds, but slowly you will feel the o ring start to give, and then you are home free. It's a patience thing -- make sure the oil is "warm" ... almost hot.<p>Kieth has a good call with the jar lid dealios that are made for old people <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Joe, did you get your AARP letter ?
