My point is, make sure the old oil filter gasket has been removed prior to installing the new oil filter or you may be in for a surprise.
Good catch, and thanks for bringing this up. That used to be more of a problem years ago. I still always look, but haven't seen or heard of it happening in a long time. Could turn into a problem if one just changed the oil and took it out for the day.
