I did the same thing to mine and realized i was suppose to use a filter wrench. I called cummins direct up hear in newengland and the parts guy had no idea what i was talking about. He said it must have been part od the dodge design. So it left me with no other choice but to order it from the dealer and they had it in the next day. Good luck and remember to always use a filter rench. Another thing too, get rid of that plastic bottle and extend the breather tube down more so you don't get the engine compartment and radiator all oil covered. I used 5/8" heater hose.
