If I remember correctly it is a 3/4" plug socket or a regular socket unthread it all the way then put the wire back on it and pull it out.

There is a trick I learned about getting the plug started. Get a small chunk of fuel tubing that will fit over the end of the plug, with some dialectic grease on it. this will let you get the plug threads started, then pull off the tube and tighten.

Great idea. One thing I will add is not to get dielectric grease on the porcelain close to the base. This can cause a misfire........

Tru. yo just need a little bit on the top to get the tube to slip off. I learned this from trying to get the plugs in my Manxter buggy, It has the Bergman cooling system on it.

Hey HK - I've got one of those too - not a Manxter, but a Manx clone.

Looks good Quad. Looks like your running the old swing axle.

Mine is one of the Manxter2+2 and a Barrien buggy that is sitting in Denver, I have a 2380 Jack Rabby Type 4 engine and 091 tranny

Gumby has a built swing axle tranny (Rhino case, Super diff, close ratio welded gears) with a 2180 (92 bore x 82 stroke) engine... fun toy.

That Subi engine has always been a desire of mine.

I've got a turbo 1776 on my 2 seater rail - now THAT is a kick in the pants - that power driving 800 lbs (plus my big butt)... at least it was before I threw a rod. Too many toys - I still haven't got around to fixing it, I bought the Manx instead LOL.
