    I must kill the oil filter !

    OK this mother F-ing oil filter on my stx15 is the HARDEST damn filter I have EVER tried to remove !

    Seriously spent about 2 hours with no luck. I tried the circular ratcheting clamp, but it just kept slipping off. Bloody arms and hands = awesome !

    How in the hell do I get this thing off?! I think the only thing I haven't tried is a strap type wrench ... what size is the diameter of the filter? I got the Purolator 14612

    get one of the metal filter caps that use a 3/8th ratchet, most auto parts stores have them, just have to get the right size that fits the filter.
