spark plugs in the sohc

Wow what a hassle to change the plugs in this sucker. took me over 2 hours to get it done.. lol. Once I took my tire and fender wheel well off it was much easier but still what a hassle for spark plugs.

Aren't you glad that you have platinum plugs and don't have to do that every 15,000 miles?

The OHV 4.0 is much easier. I removed the air box and was able to reach all of them from the top. Only took me about 20 min to get em all done.

i thought it was rather easy, compared to my 92 with the 4cyl(dual plug)

i left the tires on and did it all from the inside of the fenders. but the body lift may have helped some.

Im guessing the body lift did help cause there is no way I could reach the plug with my hand without removing the tire on the passenger side. Unless you have one small hand dude.
