now on the other side - there was more oil. it was all pooled up - so i really couldn't see anything. i tried fishing with the allen key - but really didn't poke around that much because i was afraid i could damage the filter screen and then not be able to remove it.

by the looks of peaty's pictures - i take it you use the needle nose, (or 3-prong) , to grab the top of the filter - which is made of plastic. is the diameter of the filter just slightly smaller than the banjo?

thanks again guys.
I would suggest using the 3 prong b/c the pliers has the ability to scrape some of the plastic/metal off as you try to grab it...and the 3 prong just works better/easier.

Just my 2 cents.
