Default Oil filter adapter o-ring

Today I decided to fix my oil leak(filter o-ring). While I was doing it I took some pics to make a write up enjoy and let me know what you think:

Tools needed: T-60 socket 1/2 wrench and 11/16 wrench.
I used the 1/2 to turn the socket and the 11/16 as leverage.

I started to try to turn it but it didnt budge, so I heated the bolt with a blow torch and it broke loose rather easy after that.

Then wrench it all the way off and pull it out and throw it up on the work bench and pop the oil o-ring out.

After pulling off the old ring I cleans the surface of any junk and put the new ring on.

After putting on the new ring put the adapter back on. But I would recommend removing the filter before installation cause its less weight to handle. Then bolt it back on and snug it up tight put the filter back on check oil level, and then enjoy a none leaking adapter.
