I've been told that most techs just hand tighten the filters. Like nova pilot, if ya got a torque wrench ya might as well get your $ worth!Bean said:Ahhh...
Sometimes my ignorance amazes me! :2:
Anyway, 16 lbft isn't much. I'd assume it just about "hand-tight".
Thanks for the info.
BTW...That's a big supply of filters you got there!
Why not just buy them with your filters (if you're using Honda filters, that is)? I know Tim automatically ships the crush washers with the filters he sells, as does my local dealer. They're about 25 cents each seperately.Pilot4Biking said:My point was only that it's a pain to go find a replacement part everytime, when it doesn't leak if you use the same one over and over. Just trying to tell everyone who is contemplating DIY oil changes all the facts.
