I'd like to thank......

The complete moron who designed the position of the oil filter on the EF Falcon.

To change the oil filter on the AU is a 1 minute job. Climb under, loosen, remove, replace, tighten. Plenty of time to do it and get back to smokeing my ciggy.

The EF is a 4 smoke job, ensuring the kids are well out of earshot.

I am now patching up whats left of my skin on my knuckles and telling the wife not to travel 5000kms in the next 12 months cause its going to take me that long to forget what a bastard job it was.

They aren't that hard guys, get under it and use one of the socket type removers.

Re: I'd like to thank......

I can't say I've tried for the oil filter, but I was gonna do the leads, took one look at them and went "Hmm, I think I'll pay someone!" Great cars, drive em hard, never work on em! lol Maybe I'm just lazy though.

Re: I'd like to thank......

Yeah dizzy on an EF would be a pain

I changed the leads on mine, coil lead is absolute bastard. The dizzy end of it is alright from the top, then I jumped under for the coil end.

Changing the dizzy on a EF? About as easy as changing spark plugs on a deisel.
