Oil filter 2, chain wrench and screwdriver 0

Thats the score today...

I now have an engine that has no oil in it, but does have an oil filter attached that has a big hole in it.

The chain wrench slips, and the screwdriver bent....

Tomorrow, I will be walking to halfords to purchase a better wrench and a very big screwdriver!!
 
I tried a big screwdriver (ripped it open), a friends strap wrench (crushed it) a chain wrench (slipped) and finally one of those 3 legged things that cost me £7 from my local accessory shop - that p155ed it! After struggling for hours! Cut to the chase - get a 3 legged thing (I can do a photo if you don't know what I mean)

have you got a bit of sandpaper you can slip between the chain wrench and the filter to give it a bit of bite ?
I have been there and appreciate your problem :(
good luck
 
Funnily I don't see where taking oil filter off should be a problem. :(

Yse those three pronged things are the best of the lot. For some reason much easier then the otheres. :eek: :eek:

Mind you I've yet to fail with a screwdriver. :p
 
I use one of those strap things for taking off jar tops. Works everytime.

I suppose it depends who tightened up the filter;)
