I went to change the oil in my Mercury 60 HP 4 stroke and I cannot get the filter off. Last year I bought a oil filter wrench (size F) that fits on a socket wrench. It worked just fine. This year I used the same darn wrench and it just slips on the filter. I tried to get adjustable belt type wrench and it impossible to get to because of the close quarters. Any suggestions?

I solved my own problem. I put electrical tape around the filter and it provided enough friction for the socket filter wrench to grip.

Have had to drive a screw driver into a lot of filters to break them loose.

Did you buy the correct oil filter last year?

I've learned not to tighten oil filters as much as I used to, after resorting to the screwdriver method too many times!

Remember to put fresh oil on the gasket, a dry gasket will do that every time.
