Spark Plug removal

Post by charlie baker » Fri Oct 06, 2017 2:52 pm

I have undone the wires, but the remaining "plug" is too long for my Spark Plug Socket. is there a trick or a source for an XL socket???

Hi Charlie,

There is a stamped steel tool that several suppliers sell for shielded spark plugs

I use a deeply broached 1/2 drive deep socket, then adapt down to 3/8 ratchet. Snap-on works. Sunex doesn’t, broaching is not deep enough. In a pinch, i’d cut & weld two cheap sockets together.

Suggest you use copper washers on the plugs (same as included in the Mite’s gasket kits) in lieu of the steel seals on the plugs.
The copper washers fit & seal better around the steel spark plug inserts.
