Wow, some idiot really torqued the oil housing like crazy. I tried the plastic adapter cap, perfectly sized, with a 2 foot torque wrench, and it just broke the cap plastic. Then I tried a strap wrench, besides not being able to get it to fit that deeply, the metal handle would just bow over to the edge. So I'm out of ideas, and the car's oil is emptied, so I guess I'll just have to skip the filter for this change (it's a 7500 change) and get the next oil-change earlier...at a shop.

Dammit.
