My hand tight is a lot tighter than a lot of people. Ha. I have oil filter wrenches that I use to get them off if I need. Mostly after a family member takes their vehicles to a shop. They open just enough to get on the filter and you push the handle the way you want it to turn and the band tightens and friction takes place.


Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Found a 4.0l in a 96 Cherokee. Complete with harness for $600..and I have to pull it. Worth it? Jeep itself is totaled, so buying whole thing is waste.

Maybe a week on the couch ain't a bad thing..

Don't do it, just bore your 258, you already got the carb set up. Ditch the smog crap, add a header a shazzam.

Removed the MORE rear upper shock relocation brackets & painted them for Rik.

I don't need 'em anymore since I'm changing the suspension.

I'm pretty sure there is a torque spec for all oil filters, but nobody looks it up or uses it.
