    Hi guys,

    After a quick answer. What socket size to fit 4ag 16V sparkies?

    I had a deep socket at home but the prick doesnt fit in the recess around the plug.

    I use a 16mm thin-walled impact driver on a ratchet handle.

    Your plugs shouldnt be done up too tight anyways.

    I use 16mm deep socket (maybe yours is too phat). It has a rubber grommet on the inside which grabs on the white part of the plug and pulls it up. Its a specialised piece.

    Yeah, this. The rubber fell out of mine. Long nose pliers to put them back in, too
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?

    If the deep socket doesnt fit, take it to a machinist (or at least someone who can use a lathe) and machine down the external diameter a few mm's from the open end up. Might only cost you a few beers.

    Better yet, head to super cheap or an auto store of some description and buy a few cheap separate 16mm sockets and get a few done at once. If they have to machine quite a bit off the sockets can crack, so you'll have spares.

    I use do this to the plug sockets for my RX7's, 13B's have a big ridge around the spark plug hole and 90% of spark plug sockets dont fit.
