I suggest you NOT use a torque wrench on the oil filter. Use the old tried and trusted 3/4 turn after first contact of the "O" ring. For the drain bungs, the wrench is appropriate, but many go by calibrated wrist --"click". You really should have a torque wrench or two in your shop box; 3/8 and 1/2 drive.

Torque Wrench

Have changed my oil many times.
No torque wrench, no leaks, no problems.
You should use new washers.
It takes just a little TOUCH, to know when you compress the washers.
