I have a pre-94 motor in my post 94 frame. Trying to pull the spark plugs- for the life of me, can not find a socket to fit.
Anyone know what size socket works? won't fit all the way down to the plug itself
no kidding? 18mm right? do you have a magnetic pick up tool? if you do, try dropping the socket down there to see if it's just a length issue. if it is, you can use a short extension to just lightly insert into the connection and turn it out. you wont be able to remove it with the extension, but you've got a handy magnetic pick up tool for recovery of both the socket and spark plug.
I have '94+ so I don't know if it is different, but I just took mine out with a deep Husky 18mm socket. I used a few extensions and it fit over the plug without a problem. Then I used needle-nose pliers to get the plug out after it was unscrewed. Home Depot sells Husky tools I think. You might be able to buy just an 18mm socket.
