I cant seem to find these things to save my life, but I know I have seen them before. Might be a little hard to explain, but its a piece that you can slip over a spark plug and then use a wrench to tighten the plug into the head. The usually come in a kit of 3 (different lengths) and they work great when you cannot get a regular socket over the end of the spark plug and you cannot fully tighten the plug with a wrench. I need a set for 5/8" hex spark plugs. Anybody know where to get these things?

Take a regular spark plug socket. Cut it in half to shorten it. Then drill out the end of it so the tip of the plug can pass through.

Well if youre like me you have 3 or 4 regular sockets kickin around and the 10 minutes to make it is worth waiting 2 days for $20 socket to show up. :)


















...............and when you lose the first one, youll know how to make another :p

You are looking for a plug socket for a s10 pick up/Blazer or 1500 pick up with the 4.3 motor for the #3 cyl. where the steering shaft is in the way. snap on, mac, matco, sears sells them, maybe check napa.

Yup yup! I do have a few extras! I may just go that route for this one car that I am tinkering around with right now. I know I have seen these things in a set; they were black oxide, and the set of 3 was 30-40 bucks. Might have seen it at one of the larger races, or maybe the big swap meet at Daytona.
