Looks like someone death torqued the filter on last service. I don't see any locker on the exposed threads... I wonder if it was missing from the factory assembly...?
OP, if I were you, I would order a new part... the bearing face on the threaded filter adapter looks all buggered up, I wouldn't want to thread that back up into my motor.
