#1 plug, could not find any 3/8" universal joints among the metric ****ton of tools i have and i know i own at least 1...hundred of the damn things... borrowed one from a neighbor

#6 plug... pull wire loose from plug connector on wire stays connected to plug... had intended on reusing plug wires as they were in good condition... trip to advance to buy a set of wires

the only part of the whole thing to not give me any headache was the cap and rotor

When you put $60 in, expect it to be full, turn it on, and realize you could probably fit another $15.

Ykydazjw- Money comes in, you look at the zj and see the money vanish before your eyes.
