Well since we're on the topic, and everyone thinks it's so easy... How do you get the oil filter off (or on for that matter when it's full of fresh oil) without dumping half a quart of hot dirty oil over the engine mount and down the block? I change my own and try to strategically place my funnel, but it doesn't work too often, usually I end up having to hose down my driveway. So talk to me, how do you remove the filter on an M20 without spilling.
Thanks in advance,
