Can we use this type of spark plug tool on DOHC?

Recommended Posts

Snap On (I know... $$$) makes a spark plug tool that fits into the spark plug tube and leaves about an inch sticking out of the tube (ie: just enough clearance to get a ratchet in there). The end that sticks out is knurled so after you start with a ratchet you can finish with just your hand. It's great for starting the plugs back into the sockets- makes it damn near impossible to crossthread them.

man the Dohc is a pain in the neck.. I tell you what I did.. I used a 6" extenstion on the drivers side and a 3" on the passenger side with a Flex hard rachet. I bet I could of used the 3" ext. on the drivers side too but I was not sure.. But I tried the 6" Ext. on the passenger side and it was a no go with the airbox in the way.. getting some tools for myself this weekend.

I like to wrap my swivel(u-joint) with electrical tape to make it less swively. It makes a nice short extension. I like to work from underneath with the mud guards removed.
