WHAT HAPPENS IF OVERTIGHTENED?
CUS MY BUDDY...ONE OF MY ENGINE SWAP HELPERS put it on with the oil filter wrench........ IF YOUVE READ THAT THREAD YOU WILL KNOW WHY I NOW HAVE MY DOUBTS........
anyways there was no gasket left grom old one cus i wire brushed and scraped it off before installing new oilfilter
i have a new oil filter for the truck ...id prefer to use it as a gasket donor than a replacement as i currently have bosh superduty filter and bought a cheap fram truck series filter for its gasket
o ya and do i absolutely have to drain my oil to change my filter.......isnt most of my oil in the pan.....theres like what 3/4 a quart at the most in the filter
