Re: Oil Filter Trapped
A couple tips for not getting oil all over the headers that I learned years ago froma crusty old mechanic I worked with.
1. Use a 12" section of 5" dia heating duct as a shield. Wrap it around the collector area. Any oil that hits it will drip off and it won't be a fire/melt risk like plastic or paper towels.
2. Pierce the end of the filter with a centering punch and let the oil drain while you drain the oil from the oil pan. A coffee can (metal or plastic) works great as a drip pan for the filter.
When everything is drained, remove the filter and you'll have a lot less mess to deal with.
