Filter wrench

After al the fun I had with the Manifold, Went ahead and gave the engine a full enema with all fluids and filters, I had loosened the Oil filter when I had the Turbo off ( Thank god ) , after the run time with new manifold I switched out all filters , Installing the Oil filter I ordered a 4.5" off amazon, well not even close, Had to use a piece of rubber tube along with a junkie strap wrench, to give it the proper crush on gasket...
Who uses what wrench?
Thx

This will beat any strap wrench on the market. I got mine at Napa.

I have this one. Works ok. I also poke a hole in the bottom of the filter and let it drain before taking it off. Less mess.

I got mine there as well. If you have the filter diameter you can find the exact one you need. They have quite an assortment.

Poking a hole in the bottom of a filter works...IF you know for sure you can get the filter off.

Yes I started to say that but I didnít really think it was necessary.
I have also seen people drive a long screwdriver through a filter and turn it out with that.

I got a call from my Aunt when I was a teenager, the guy at the service station told her that the oil in her 2 year old car needed to be changed, even if it only had 1,000 miles on the car. She asked me to do it. After 2 years, all the various filter wrenches I had just crushed the filter can, so I had to resort to the screwdriver through the filter. I think my dad had described that trick to me once, but had never seen it in application.

Messy, but effective way to go. Be advised, if you have a stubborn filter, you may just destroy the filter can and not be any closer to removing the filer from the engine.

What is the Fleetguard oil filter part number on your motor home?

The reason I ask is if it is LF16035 oil filter. Geno's Garage sells a tool that grabs the flutes of the filter tight and you use a 19mm socket with a ratchet drive an extension to remove the oil filter. I never had an issue removing my oil filter on my 6.7L engine with this tool.

I use a big wide strap wrench bought at napa, 25 or 30$. It does from my little tundra filters up to the biggest you'll ever find. I had a 4 ft cheater on it to pull the airdryer. Never slipped , only dented but didn't crush the filter.

I like the big strap wrench from Napa as well because you can use it on all different size filters on the coach....except the Cummins generator filter.....I use the Channel Lock filter pliers for that little guy.

I have the big metal tool filter tool but never use it anymore since I got the strap wrench.

Lisle strap wrench shared for me. I poke hole after I make sure it loosens . Seen some that grab filter bottom with jaws as well.
Once I had to make a four pin spanner flat socket to fit the base holes, after entire can tore off a 2500 GM diesel filter. It was first oil change of new work truck. I would say it took 150 plus ft.lbs to finally loosen it.
