Scavenge pump fitting

Continuing on with the dry sump fitting, now that the pulley to power the scavenge pump was installed, it was time to fit the scavenge pump itself. The pump fixes into the bracket just fine, and then the bracket uses a few existing bolts to fit onto the engine, but the oil filter needs to come off to remove one of the bolts that the bracket uses, and it's stuck fast. No amount of twisting with my hands will get the filter off, so I'll need a tool, and everything I have tried won't work. Not a huge amount of work done on the engine tonight then!
