Well said !There are people on this forum who just love to jump on members who dare to bring up a topic that has been discussed before. Calm down. If you don't have interest in a thread just don't read it - skip it. The man has a simple question that deserves a respectful reply. Some members don't live on this forum as others obviously do.
<<<SNIP>>>Putting it back on, hand tight is fine.
Yep, me too. I have the pliers only when one is put on too tight.I may be the odd man of the lot. When I put a filter on first I oil the gasket on the new filter and screw it on until it makes contact. Then I turn about one half to three quarters turn by hand. I have never had one leak and rarely need any tool to remove one I've put on.
