I did my first oil change today on my gator and it took me forever to get the factory installed oil filter off. I used every imaginable oil filter tool I had including the one that goes on a ratchet that is the size of the back of the filter, the strap style that also fastens on the end of a ratchet and other traditional oil filter wrench’s. After I was going to give it a break I tried my larger channel lock wrench and it finally broke loose. I was just wondering what you guys used the first time you had to take the factory tightened oil filter off. I should have posted this before I tackled this task but maybe the next guy will have better luck.
