5/16" or 1/4" gas line about 3" long slides over the porciline of the plug and you can pull it right out, also works for spinning it in with out cross threading.

others have said you can get a deepwall socket to get it out but i have not been able to fit any size down in the hole and get ahold of the plug. I found a rusted old sparkplug wrench from a old tool bag that i am pretty pos was not the raptor but for a 98 honda recon and that is what I use. I cant remember the size but the tool is much thinner than a socket. Maybe us who are trying to use sockets have the wrong brands are we are idoits but i just couldnt fit any socket to get the plug out i had to use the thin plug tool. Others have said they can or use sockets what brand and why am i unsable to fit any size socket maybe some of us just have a tad bit smaller hole maybe a small flaw not allowing us to use sockets?
