    Default can't change my oil filter

    Do you guys have to jack up the motor to change the oil filter?

    Can i buy one that's a little shorter?(I think 1/2 in shorter would work)

    Do i need to run a marine oil filter or is auto fine?

    Why don't you just put a Chevrolet in it! Just kidding! My first thought would purchase a remote filter and be done with it.

    If thats a Ford, you can find the angled filter adapter, was used on the trucks, and retains the stock filter, but at a diferent angle.

    they make a 'shortie' filter that makes it much easier to change.

    No need to change it, just poke a hole in it with a screwdriver to get the old oil out

    Yeah, it is a Ford... they just figure that you'll blow it up before it ever needs to be changed and a new one can be slapped on at that time.

    Haha. I thinks thats actually described in the owners manual.

    Why not just cut the stringer? Im sure a sawzal will take care this issue.
    Im sure it will be ok, you have two of them.

    This is what I use. I had the remote with stainless lines and anodized fittings and got rid of all that crap for one of these. I much prefer this setup. Nice n neat, compact, still able to run a full size filter, clears the stringer and engine rail and works great. Nomenclature isn't 100% correct though. It says rotates it to the front. I've got mine going to the back. You can position it any which way.

    Great piece and as I recall pretty resonably priced. I think it ended up being less than the remote, the line and fittings to reach it.

    Yeah it's dirty.............so what.

    k&n hp2004 is the short filter and works fine.
    if you go to a re-location kit DO NOT use the cast one. i had one blow off the block (bad threads) could have been really bad.
