2006 rxp spark plug issues
I recently bought a low hour rxp from a friend, I want to change the spark plugs and I bought a new set from Oreilly,
The problem is I can not get a plug socket to fit on the plugs that are in it now?
I have tried 5/8" thin wall speciality sockets, a 17mm deep, 19mm deep, a 18mm deep,
anything bigger than18mm will not fit down the hole?
The guy I bought it from said from what he remembers he just had changed them 10 hours ago, but it was last year, and he can't remember what tool he used to change them with,

did you try the spark plug wrench in the tool kit in the front compartment? I used a standard 5/8 spark plug socket from autozone, duralast brand.

the wrench is gone from the tool kit,
I know it sounds crazy but I have tried every plug wrench size/combination from 2 different mechanic shops and still nothing,
it almost looks to be a 13/16" size but nothing that size will fit in the hole,
the previous owner is turning over his garage to find the tool he used the first time,

Just went out and pulled a plug and snapped these pics.

Should be 5/8 socket. I wonder what spark plug he put in there?

I'm wondering the same thing.

If he put some weird size in, try pulling the valve cover and spark plug tubes and then try to remove them.

he definitely shouldn't put those same plugs back in it.

Wrong plug maybe? Look at the bottom and see if the old and new look the same.

yeah he's got the wrong plugs installed and can't get them out.
