If you haven't found success with the first 15 responses, might I recommend you try what I use on my M103. I have a NAPA oil filter wrench that fits on a 3/8" ratchet. It has two hardened black arms that are linked to a cam type base. When you turn the system clockwise, it opens up tha arms. When turned ccw, the arms tighten. I've never seen this wrench slip and I agree with the fellow who said steady, hard pressure will win the day.
If there are bets being laid, I'd wager that no oil was used on the gasket and the filter was not overtorqued very much on install. How many mechanics do you know that will hurt themselves to do something the wrong way? And I've never seen ANYBODY put an oil filter on with an air wrench! Although it does paint an amusing picture, doesn't it?
Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
