    Dominator / FMX

    I hadn't been looking forward to this job, but was really pleased that the filter retainer came out without as much hassle as I thought it would. I ground down the largest 'Easiout' that I had in my tool box...just enough so's to grab the rounded off sides of the retainer, then put a bit of...
