Just changed my oil for the first time. Didn't take note when I removed the oli canister, but when I put it back on there is about a 1/8 to 1/4 spacce between it and the engine block. In other words, it does not sit flush against the engine block. Is this right? Torqued to specs and no leaks, just looks funny. Thanks.

Yes, the o-ring is installed properly. If you look at the photo you posted, the canister flange (next to the "W" in the newspaper) does not sit flat against the engine block. Is this correct? Thanks.

on my car, the flange does sit flush with the block. I do not use a torque wrench to put it back together.

I can't remember how mine sits. Did you tighten it up to see if it leaks?

They all look that way. Like they have never been off. They are a black plastis can that looks dirty to begin with and it's in an area that is exposed to lots of dirt. We are all use to shiny smooth spin on filters.

The filter housing should sit flush against the block. There shouldn't be a gap. Make sure that you applied a little oil to the o-ring before screwing the housing on, otherwise it will bind up. Even then it can be a bit tight to get snugged down.
