    Your question makes no sense. There is absolutely no need to remove the OverHead Camshaft (OHC) in order to do this job. Please explain further why you think it's necessary.

    Tip

    Changing spark plugs in any car


    When changing spark plugs I find it best to remove only one wire at a time. I remove the wire, change the plug, measure the old wire against the new wires, and replace the wire before moving to the next wire and plug. This way I do not have to know the firing order for the plugs.
    Don't for get to check the plug gap.

    Inspection

    Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
    If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

    How do I change Spark plugs?


    93 park ave has a v8. Four plugs on each side. Followthe spark plugs from top of engine to spark plugs. Use a spark plug wire remover (plastic pliers) to help remove wire from plug. Mark each wire where they go. Go down to auto store and buy pugs and get a swivel spark plug wrench to fit the plugs anduse a extension with rachet to remove plugs (turn counter-clockwise to remove). Replace with new. (new plugs should screw in with fingers, then tighen with socket firmly. Not over tight. I holp this helps a little - ran out of writing space. Good luck

    Changing spark plugs on lincoln town car


    Remove the spark plug wires, remove the spark plugs,replace them. Do this one cylinder at a time if you never did it. On that year you may need to remove the upper intake to access the plugs on one side. In that case go to a shop. This would not be a novice job.

    REMOVAL OF THE PLUGS:

    Do not attempt any maintenance on spark plug if engine is hot. 
    1. Disconnect negative battery terminal. 
    2. Carefully remove high-tension leads. 
    3. Use compressed air to blow any dirt or debris from around spark plug hole. 
    4. Check that spark plug fits squarely in spark plug socket and remove spark plug.

    Raise a vehicle and install SST(OK552 131 001) in order to replace cylinder 2, 4, 6 spark plug. 

    INSTALLATION:

    1. Install spark plug into cylinder head.

    Tightening torque : 18~22lb-ft (25~30N·m, 2.5~3.0kg-m)

    2. Reconnect high-tension leads. 
    3. Reconnect negative battery cable. 

    Hope this helps and simple to understand. Good luck
