    I had similar symptoms on my 32 Classic where changing the oil filter requires a combination of the skills of Houdini and Sisyphus. I finally discovered a very small piece of the paper towelling I use to collect spillage had caught in the seal of the new filter when I screwed it home. It was invisible from any position possible for a human and I only found the cause with a flexible camera -scope.

    Good luck with your search for a remedy !
