GOOD GRIEF NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!

This is the best way to destroy the oil filter mount. Either get a pair of supersize channel locks on it or use a chisel properly and try to spin it that way. The problem is that the o-ring is basically glued to the housing causing it to stick like it was epoxied down. No easy way to get this done other than careful work.

1988 Mustang LX coupe will miss you greatly
