    Yup, I'm pretty sure everything was installed correctly, and I tightened it by hand at first (but I'm very weak ). I've done 2 oil changes before so the procedure is not new to me.

    i do my oil changes all the time and just tighten the filters by hand,and it doesn't have to be on there all that tight, I never had a leak. I tighten it so that next time i change it, i can always just use my hands to unscrew it as well, without any major effort. I always moisten the rubber gasket with some oil before i put the filter back in place.
