But how do you torque the filter cap with a strap wrench?

But you cannot properly torque the filter with that

I estimated the retorque. I used about as much force to tighten it as I used to remove it.

Your right, I may be off slightly. I don't mind that I estimate it, and with almost 5K miles since my oil change, there has been no problems.

Of course there are somethings that I insist in using a proper torque wrench, such as my wheel bolts, but an oil filter cover is no biggie to me. I feel comfortable doing this because I've wrenched for a while.

EDIT: In an emergency, I would feel comfortable just hand torquing the wheel bolts until I got home or to a shop.
