Check to make sure the seal ring came off with the old filter. I've had it
stay on the engine on several different occasions and several different
V8's. If not, I believe the oil filter housing actually unbolts, and you can
replace it. Not the easiest job in the world, but possible nonetheless. You
might also check to see if the threaded part that the oil filter screws into
comes out seperate.
I'm betting on the old seal, though.

Hypothetically speaking, what happens if the shade tree mechanic cross
threads the oil filter on a V8? Changed the oil, then did the brake
pads, went to drive around the block and realized I was leaving racing
stripes as I was backing down the driveway. Oil. Coming from the
filter. I had a bugger of a time getting the old one off, and the new
one seemed to be going on a little funny, but it went on. Didn't think
anything of it and it didn't drip at all until I started it up several
Funny thing is, I just about broke my arm patting myself on the back
after the brake job, thinking of how much money I saved by doing it
Thanks in advance for any advice,
