Hi all,
Could you please advise on how to remove the oil filter in a 1993 fairlane nc v8. Seems that clearance is absolutely crazy.... There's no room from top or bottom. HELP!
Thanks

yeah its a pain in the a** man, you dont have much choice but to just keep working with it, you will find a spot thats good for you but might take some time, also try going from the top of the engine bay thats how i did mine, but i have thermo fans so made it a little easier

You need to fiddle around due to the K frame, but it's pretty easy.

From your experience, have you been able to get a strap wrench into the opening at the bottom?
