Changing Plugs
« on: 12:50:12 PM / 01-Sep-07 »
When I tighting the intake plug closest to the wiper moter the plug wedges against the block, has anyone ran into this? I had it tuned up in 93 and put it in storage for 10 years and I recently found that plug realy loose, meaning the mechanic from 93 ran into the same problem but never told me

I have a CA20E but also have that same problem. You're gonna need to find a really thin spark plug socket and keep it as straight as possible when tightening. I had a few different ones and I still some problems. I just had to go slow and be careful when I tightened it, hoping not to strip/crossthread it or anything.
