AFAIK, a thin-walled 18 mm deep socket fits the OEM spark plug, as in the CORRECT socket in the stock tool kit.First time changing my spark plug. Got out the stock toolkit. Spark plug wrench is not the correct size, is a 12 and the plug seems to be a 18. Anyone ele seen the same with their toolkit?
When I first went to change it, I found my socket didn't fit. So I bought another one. That one didn't fit, either. It was then that I realized that spark plugs came in a multitude of sizes and I looked it up.AFAIK, a thin-walled 18 mm deep socket fits the OEM spark plug, as in the CORRECT socket in the stock tool kit.
Nevermind.... I put the tank back on and it is starting like a champ.After replacing the spark plug should I be able to start it with the tank still off or does the tank have to be on for it to start. It is just turning over with the tank off. I thought there should be enough gas to at least start it for a few seconds.
