    Years ago when I was changing oil in a few 7.3 PSD’s on a regular basis, I had a $5 hammer that I welded a short Ramset pin (nail) to the face of. It was very handy, I would hit the bottom of the filter first thing, but not pull it out until I moved the drain pan into position. I only takes a time or two of making a mess with that big old filter full of hot oil before you come up with a solution that works for you.

    When @snicklas mentioned the drain valve my first thought was, "Yeah but how do I get one on that stupid oil filter??" And now I have my answer! Thanks @IDIBRONCO! Especially since I run the PSD filter it's even bigger and more awkward full of hot oil. Problem solved.

    I either do jeremy's trick with draining the filter, or a put a plastic bag over the whole filter and catch all the oil that way if its a low truck
