This spark plug socket does NOT fit....

Thin wall, figured it could work.  While it does fit one of the plugs, the side one I guess.  It won't fit down the hole for the more vertical plug.

Just a warning - for those deep well spark plugs in the ascot head, make sure the socket you use has a 'keeper' in it to prevent the plug from falling out or have one of those plug grippers handy to do the last few turns.  If not, the plug can fall out and wedge itself sideways in the head cavity making it a real beeauch to get out.  I speak from experience  ???

PS: the original took kit has the right size plug socket (which my kit unfortunately does not have).
