Getting that oil filter adapter bolt out.

My oil leak from the bad oil filter adapter o-ring is getting bad. I need to get that replaced.
I tried it once before, but got frustrated when I couldn't get a tool on it and leverage at the same time. This time, I'm thinking that I'll need to take the engine mount loose and jack up the engine to get the clearance I need to remove that dang bolt.
I'm worried about the bolt, though. I'm worried that I might break off the bolt trying to take it out. I'm hoping that you'll tell me that I'm stupid to worry about that.

I had to use a 3 foot long pipe over my wrench to break it loose.

Dude,

I removed the one motor mount bolt that is directly in line with it, and I had plenty of room to work. Didnt have to jack the motor or anything. fairly straightforward, but yeah, that bolt is a biznitch.

......its gonna be tight all the way to the last twist, too. There is a smaller O ring on the shaft of the bolt that binds all the way out. Dont sweat it, go slow, dont panic. Maybe crack it forward before you back it off to loosen it up.

Good luck.
