    Default Socket Size to Take Out Spark Plug

    Trying to take out Spark Plug on 91 Mitsubishi Minicab 660cc 12V Engine.

    5/8" Standard Spark Plug Socket doesn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Why doesn't it work? Doesn't fit the hex or too big in diameter to get to the plug.

    The plugs are 5/8 inch. You must have a thin wall socket to reach the hex. You can also take a standard 5/8 plug wrench and grind it down to size.

    try the tool kits that come with some of the bigger honda gen-set, the plug wrench will work.
