#%@$&^* Oil Filter - Help - July 10, 2016, 05:12 PM

My oil filter is totally mocking me. I've rounded the nut and sacrificed a screw driver but it's still as tight as a nun's nether regions. Anyone in the South Riding area have one of those oil filter wrench things? I have some cold Devils Backbone to trade; tonight or tomorrow night is optimal; gotta load up Tuesday night. Thanks!

Why not just go to Walmart and get a strap wrench?

Drill a hole in it, put a fat screwdriver through that hole, put a piece of metal pipe over the screwdriver.

Douse the threads in PBblaster and let it work for a little bit, then use the pipe for leverage to loosten it.

Thanks but I've gone from bad to worse. Got a pair of 4" pliers and went to work on the filter; cranked the crap out of it, then realized my screwdriver penetrated some round thing next to the oil filter. No wonder the damn thing wouldn't rotate...I have no problem being laughed at for this, I've earned it. Gotta have this fixed by Wed evening so I can make Road Atlanta this weekend.

Did you do the last oil change? I had an issue with my SUV where the filter wouldn't come off. It was cross threaded and it was a huge pain in the ass.

It wasn't cross threaded, just tight and I was an idiot.

If anyone has an oil cooler for an 05 600rr laying around, please hit me up.
