I did my spark plugs yesterday. Only hard part was the black plug coil pack on the driver side. I put it in upside down and just spun it in the correct position. Also once you break the plug free take ratchet off the small extension and unscrew them by hand.

Jesus, come over, I'll go through the step by step on how to properly use a cutting utensil. -.-

Any way, purchased a 92 legacy ss last week. Still on the trailer. Tonight going to get her off and start tearing off accessories. Gotta take the engine out and rebuild. Rebuild thread? Maybe?

thx we all make mistakes huh? no lessons needed here.
I did plugs after I was stitched up, I had the 'accident' cutting a cable tie from a stroller of all things

I kept my mind off things by doing my plugs, and I already had it all laid out to do, needed to drive that evening, turned out I did a proper job on my wrist, had corrective nerve surgery today ;-(
