LOL. I have to remind myself that sometimes.
Just pay 3 dollars for the Motorcraft, I run mine for 5k with no problems

I keep an old M-14 canvas rifle sling in my toolbox for problems like this. Cargo straps work too.

Use a strap to encircle the filter at the base where the metal is strongest, then hold the strap tightly to the filter with a pair of vise grips (tips pointed at the filter).

The visegrip tip becomes the fulcrum, pushing into the side of the filter, tightening the strap and giving you good leverage.

Even the smaller visegrips work.

Use a Motorcraft, and the end-cap specifically for it. Congrats on the hard fought victory!
