What model machine do you have?

As the plug on a single can be changed by.....

1) pulling the right (shifter) side cover
2) sliding off plug wire
3) blow out hole w/ air gun
4) slide in socket, then attach 2-3" extension and ratchet
5) loosen plug
6) reverse of step 4
7) repeat in reverse for new plug installation.

It's all a snug fitting process, but can be done!! And if your man hands are tooo big, ask the kids or wife to help..... it's that easy with your dirrection!!

Don't need a special tool , can do it with a 5/8 plug socket, ratchet and short extention, do both plugs from right side, take both side covers off so you can see, use compressed air and blow all the dirt and grime away from plugs before you remove them,otherwise it will fall into engine, get some di-electric grease and put in plug boots before you put them back.
