Well Otto, I'm still reading ye thread! Just read all the posts again! I'm going to change mine out - FINALLY - this week! Went to Ford dealer to get plugs Friday, but they were out. Oreileys didn't have them either. Motorcrafts, right? I just read that somebody had problems with the new Motocrafts, made in Mehico, quality not same, blah, blah, blah. I don't know. Anyway, I've just GOT to get'er done!

Oh, can y'all lay out the tools needed and post a pic of them? Man, that would be a big help! Especially those squiggly universal jointed thingamajig wrenches. Thanks!

Well, next week turned into next month, which is now this month. I finally found plugs at an out of state Advance Auto. Bought the plug socket with swivel and magnet on it, but forgot to get the swivel 7mm socket. Today I finished the left side! Man, that right side has me intimidated! I'm going back out now to see about removing power steering bracket and all that other mess so I can see the COPs on right side. Think I'll tackle #7 & 8 first. I like to get hardest out of the way. I thought left side would be hardest, that's why I did it first, only to look more closely at right side! Oh me. If I can get that #7 COP bolt out, I think I'll be good... I'll let y'all know how it goes...

I got #8 changed. Driver side by firewall one. No magnet to get bolt, socket that I dropped into that abyss two times! Clothes hanger and bubble gum got them, dropped socket again, bubble gum got it further out but deeper down. Small loop on hanger luckily went through and nabbed me socket. I polished a bunch of mess understand there by wiping up me sweat. Power schmower, give me an easy to work on six any day! I now KNOW my next truck will be that plain 3.7, 3.5 six. IF, if, that is, things like plug changes are easier! Honestly, I'm ready to buy an old restored inline six!
