In Reply to: Socket for NGK plugs??? posted by John on January 15, 2002 at 21:51:43:

head please let me know. I've been lookin' 4 over 6 months. 11/16 socket is good 4 Bosch plugs, but NGK & Split Fires use 18mm. The 18mm socket is larger by a hair over the 11/16 socket. I've not been able 2 find a 18mm thin wall socket that will fit down inside the sparkplug wholes. 4 along time I thought it was just me, but know I see I'm not alone & I'm sorry 2 hear that. I've tried Mac & Snap-on w/no luck. The Mac socket even got stuck in the head, but with a little oil & alot of prayer it came out. I'll keep checkin' this board & hopefully WE will find an answer.

Wantin' Split Fires out & NGK's in,
