Question about Husqvarna 23 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor
Make sure that you have a new replacement filter cartridge ready. See if you can locate a product called PB Blaster (available at most better auto parts stores). Spray the PD Blaster around the base of the oil filter where it screws into to housing. Using a small headed hammer, or anything else such as a cold chisel that has some weight to it, gently tap around the housing using a lot of small taps rather than really striking it hard. This sets up a resonance in the metal of the housing that helps the PB Blaster wick into the area where the filter connects to the housing. Wait a few minutes (I usually do this twice) and then try unscrewing the filter again. Worst case scenario is drive a heavy screwdriver all the way through the filter and try using that to unscrew it. If you tear up the filter, use Vice-Grips to rip off the remaining ring of the filter from the housing. Clean the contact area of the housing and also the rubber seal of the new filter with a rag. Get some clean oil on your finger and apply it all around the rubber seal of the new filter. Screw the new filter onto the housing and tighten it as hard as you are able using your HANDS ONLY!! One quarter turn past full contact should be all that is necessary. Never use a filter wrench to tighten a new filter as it makes it too tight. Fill the crankcase with new oil and start the tractor. Let it warm up and check for any leaks around the filter. Tighten by hand only, or VERY easy use the filter wrench to give it a SMALL tightening tweak. If this has been helpful, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck.
