Default E-town ppl: may I borrow a spark plug socket?

I was going to replace the plugs Tuesday, and I just discovered that the plug socket in my socket kit is a 13/16". Way too big. Even the plug socket-doodad for my bike is too big (and not really a socket).

Is there anyone willing to lend me a socket tomorrow? If I can find somewhere that is still open, I'll just go buy it, but I don't know if C-Tire or H-Depot are open.

BTW, do I really need a socket plug, or will a deep socket suffice? (don't have one of those in the correct size, either)

a regular deep socket won't work cause it can't grab on to the spark plug. you need a 5/8 spark plug socket. can get them at crappy tire for a few bucks...

I just used a deep drive socket on mine and it worked fine You can borrow it if you like, but it's probably not worth the trouble for the $5 bucks or so that it's worth.

Let me know if you want to use it.

Thanks, dude. Crappy Tire was open, so I picked up the 'Tune up' kit c/w flexheadwhatever ratchet, extension, and plug sockets.

I'm quite pleased with me to have swapped out the plugs myself. The stuttering -- the car was running on 2 cylinders, basically -- is GONE!

I picked up the "tune-up kit" as well... but for an uppipe install. That flex-head is handy for a lot of things!
