Oil Change

Postby cruzstyle » Wed Sep 02, 2009 8:19 pm

so i changed the oil to full synthetic and the spot for the oil filter, well...... sucks. its a small space the drip ramp is a good idea but does not work the best, has anyone else notices that this is a crappy place to put the filter?

It's not really a crapy place to put the filter - just the access sucks.
I cut the access hole bigger & fabbed a new cover plate.

yes your right and thats what i was trying to mean was that the access to the filter was crap but the location is in a god spot. i might have to try and cut the hole bigger myself. i wonder if you can relocate the filter??? im also going to add a oil drain valve so i dont have to take out the oil plug any more there only like 10.00 so i think its worth it.
