    After reading all the horror stories about over torqued filters i was not looking forward to my first oil change this weekend at 16 hours. To my surprise mine came off with no drama! Made sure to only hand tighten the new Mobile 1 M1_302 extra cap.filter . Should be smooth sailing from here on...

    Many years back someone on the forum had a factory filter on so tight that nothing could take it off and Indmar eventually replaced some engine parts. I can't remember who it was.

    That was zegm in 08 and the dealer took an air chisel to the filter on his LS. The filter on that boat is mounted directly to it, no remote location, and the mechanic hit the block with the chisel, breaking off part of the lip it seals to. Guy wanted to use JB Weld to fix it. He finally got the dealer, SC & Indmar to pony ups new motor.

    I thought at one point after that incident that SC and or indmar had a big quality control ,realignment to supposedly fix this issue? Seems for a couple of years this problem went away? Now it seems this problem is back. Obviously there is someone or something WAY OVER TIGHTENING these filters.

    You never hear of these issues with Cars ,yet this is a very prevailant problem ,either stemming from SC or Indmar... ANYONE know more about this?
