Sitting here thinking about opening the pool soon, and you post just what I need but hadn't thought of. Thanks!


When all think alike......no one thinks very much.

I changed oil on a 150 hp Yamaha outboard a while back, and the nimrod who had installed the filter got it so tight that the gasket was totally compressed, and the filter housing was torqued against the mounting boss! I am Sasquatch, and it took all I had to pull it off with a metal strap wrench. I don't even own a rubber strap wrench these days.

Since you're turning the bike upside down, as already suggested use a pipe wrench. All's needed is to rotate the filter a degree.
