YIKES! That's Tight!

Well, I just drained the pan and replaced with a Derale cooling pan. Planed on changing filters, and after completing the internal turned my attention to the external filter housing. Could not loosen it with 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 ratchets or breaker bars. Tried the 'ol strap wrench. NADA. Managed to turn the whole assembly, but could not access the filter. What do they use on these things..." impacts? Sprayed the top of the housing with some penetrating oil, but no joy. Any ideas...that don't require a blasting license...to get that sucker loose with out damage?

Read somewhere on here the impact gun does the trick to take it off. Supposedly does less damage than the torque of long wrenches ect.
Same with putting it back on. But they reccommended it be someone familier with their gun to stop at the 1st/2nd ratchet of the gun.

Thanks for the replies!
I stopped when the bracket and assembly started to bend with the torque. An impact seems to be the way to go...wasn't on my Christmas list, but I would feel better changing all the filters, not just the internal. What brand/ size impact wrench do y'all recommend?

^^^Yep, impact with a 22mm to take it off.....I wouldn't use it to put it back on though ...it's just cast aluminum....just hand tight and then a good snug.

Can't go wrong with most impact guns for around the home occasional use. I have a Chicago Pnuematic 1" gun, a BluePoint 3/4", 1/2" and 3/8"", but my favorite is my Snap-On 18V Electric 1/2" drive. Unless you're working in a shop all the time, a good quality 3/8" impact will do 99% of what you're probably wanting to do with it. If you think you'll want to use it down the road for some bigger stuff (leaf springs, lots of tires, etc.) then go for the 1/2" drive.

Thanks, Nighthawk
Snap-On and Blue Point may be a little over kill for my budget right now, though I usually don't skimp on tool purchases. I'll try to find a decent 1/2" impact, probably air powered, and between that and my 3/8" ratchet should tackle most things on this beast.
Many thanks to this forum, which has gotten me over the fear of doing anything, besides washing it!

Yeah, the BluePoints were a garage sale find ($50 for all 3).....a Chicago Pneumatic would be a great starter gun for you! Or an Ingersoll Rand....both are pretty well priced and high quality.

I had not considered a torch...it would save me another expenditure this time of year, but hot flames near a vessel full of paper and tranny fluid seems a bit risky. I will look into the tech files, as well.
