Hello, 1997 v8 any tips to share on removing the center bolt of the oil cooler filter adapter without removing the AC and any other items?
I am replacing it with a non cooler adapter. thanks.

It is not easy but can be done
You may want to just unbolt your ac compressor and move it up a bit to help get clearance, removing the fan and shroud also helps make it easier to work
