Hi Members. Apologies for my very first post being a Porsche "Newbie" one, but I had a bear of a time yesterday trying to remove the oil filter on my just-acquired '73 914 2.0.

My trusty clamp style removal tool wouldn't expand wide enough to grab the old, in-place filter.The OD of original filter case is about 4" (101.6 mm) Side handle tools just would not fit in the limited space as well.

After a good hour I did manage to finally get it out! I did the oil sump/strainer clean-up and regasketing as well – which also required some patience and coaxing.

So my question is, is there a recommended wrench, socket or clamp tool for the oil filter removal?

Thanks in-advance for your help.
