8 mm deep socket in 3/8" drive for M90 Hit & Miss engine
« on: June 26, 2019, 06:32:50 pm »
I saw a post by Gil regarding the size of the socket needed to remove the spark plug of one of Jin Machine's M90 hit and miss engines.  Since I did not have that socket and figure eventually I will want to remove the spark plug...I ordered one off Amazon for the princely sum of $3.44 USD including free one day shipping.  It arrived today and fits perfectly.

How can you beat that price vs. breaking the plug using an ill fitting wrench?

Good move, Rog...!

You'll never regret having that tool at the ready.

I actually have a metric set of 1/4inch drive deepwells but I am thinking my glow plug wrench I used on the rc helis may work when I change a plug.
