Where is the oil plug to drain crankcase? Is it a Allen type plug directly under engine? What size ?

When all else fails, a screwdriver and a hammer....pierce the casing and turn off the filter. It's messy and a last resort when all manner of strap wrenches and oil filter wrenches fail. Doesn't the K&N's have a nut on the end though?

I've sanded the paint off and tacked a 5/8" nut to the bottom of a couple nasty stuck on filters.

Take a screw on radiator hose clamp and tighten as tight as you can get it on the filter. Then tap the clamp screw with a hammer and screwdriver til it breaks loose. Then just turn it off
