    Oil filter housing all messed up

    The housing for my oil filter appears to be all kinds of messed up. Where there should be a 17mm nut, there is something in between 1/2" and 12mm, and I can't see how it is supposed to spin. Has the previous owner effectively ruined my ability to change the oil filter or is there something I'm missing?

    Does this nut look normal? It's also an odd size, threaded on the inside, and there doesn't appear to be any planes of contact between it and the oil filter housing.

    Junk the center bolt there, counterclockwise to remove. Butcher at work there. Pull case and filter off and hope the other fitting the bolt goes into is not butchered as well.

    What normally goes there.........
