I use a large Visegrips. It is big enough to lock on to the filter. It still is tight but it works. You still have to remove the filter from under the vehicle :( If you need a pic of the Visegrip let me know?

About 10 years ago, I started putting oil filters on with only a half turn once the seal contacts and I've never had one leak (several diff vehicles). Makes removing them a breeze. Wish someone would invent a bracket to hold the 80 on its driver's side so I could actually perform an oil change on it without looking like the Exxon Valdez came by.

I always put them on by hand with oil on the gasket and I can always get em off by hand.

Maybe you can get one of these to tilt up the 80 for oil changes.
