Tip & How-To about Ford F-250
(again this tip is being exampled by a F250, but this can be performed on any make and model) Threading or starting a new spark plug in the hole of a tight or difficult location don't freak out just yet. I have a good tip to help you out. I like to use a 1-2 foot section of a quarter inch rubber fuel line/hose. It is flexible, and will hold the plug secure without the chance of dropping it. First, when removing spark plug break loose with the appropriate size socket, and ratchet. Next, remove socket, and slip holes over the end of spark plug as the wire was to the plug. This gives you a foot or so of flexibility to remove the spark plug by hand. A lot of people should appreciate this tip. Seeing how without this there is barely enough room for a finger let alone two hands. Cheaper than magnetic socket, and more flexible than extensions. It has made my spark plug adventure a little more easier!!
