I think it's lower opposite rear, or raise front on side of pull.  Probably
caster trouble tho'.

Ain't that the truth!!  How much uncoated skin had he left, and how big a pool
in coverall elbows?  But his skin is now so soft..... Tell him to centerpunch
the filter, let it drain, put a sheet metal screw in, then remove filter.  MUCH
less PITA and full body rustproofing happening. Isn't it an ignorant place for
a filter?  Man... they should put some more stuff around it, the it wouldn't be
visible at all.
