Love it Rex

Made me chuckle.

2 stroke screamers are no match for a cool powered Mack
I must admit I do own a screamer but they are a lot of work on the stick all day

Don't get me started on oil filters, back in the day we went from cartridge oil filters to spin on filters, YAY! :) Now they have gone back to cartridge type again.... FFS :sick:
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

I used to have a Ford F-250, 6.0 Power Stroke, the primary fuel filter was horizontal inside the frame rail under the drivers door so that as soon as you broke the seal you had an arm full of diesel fuel.. Would have liked to see the engineer that designed it change it in a snowbank along side the road at -20F!!!

Had an early Toyota car that used a spin on oil filter that sat upside down. Unscrew the filter and oil ran over the block.
