I know what you mean, have never had that problem on this tractor. Did it once on a minivan though.
I even take a screwdriver and rag and clean out the groove really well.
The groove is flat at the bottom and V-shaped on the sides. The o-ring that comes with the filter is square. Just doesn't ever seem to set in the groove in a way that it will resist gravity long enough to screw on the cap. If it sets on the cap it slides sideways as you screw the cap.
I tried the dab of grease things once and it didn't help any, just made the 0-ring harder to hold on to for the second try.

It sounds like there is an old packing stuck in the groove yet. The groove should be square and deep enough that the new ring will fit completely into it. Should not be a balancing act to install.

I agree.It does sound like old one is still in there as that groove is to be flat in the bottom. I've had to take a sharpened screwdrive and use as a chisel to get the old ones out. I always install a new packing whenever I change the filters.
