There's gotta be some way. In my brother's old '86, he replaced the engine with a rebuilt one and it came with the screw-on filter. It was still a 2.5L engine. I haven't really looked at it close enough to tell if there's something you can just bolt on or not.
Those same thoughts go through my head every time I change my oil. :(

The reason I ask is because I snapped a stud torquing the bolt on, so now I'm w/ 2 bolts holding the f*cker on. So far so good, no leaks, but it's not gonna hold too well.... I don't think.
I took mine to the dealer about a year ago when they were having their complimentary oil change deal going on. They snapped one of my studs when they were changing the oil too.
I didn't know they did it until the next time I changed my oil, so I didn't bother trying to get them to replace it. I just bought another set of studs from the other Acura dealer in town. They were only about 2 bucks.

Terry. would you mind e-mailing me those pics also at [email protected] ? I'd appreciate it. I have a spare engine out of an '89 I can get the parts off of.:)
