I have those adapters in Craftsman, Snap on, and Harbor Freight "Fine China". Basically can adapt any size 1/4 to 3/4 and back down. What's getting hard to find is individual sockets for making custom tools. Used to have a local Flea Market with a few tool sellers who always had a good range of sockets or wrenches and almost any name brand you wanted. Now the Flea Market property is about to become...Condos :evil: Dennis

When I had my 3.2, I would use a regular socket w/o the plug grabbing insert. I'd break the plug loose and loosen a few turns, then I would switch to a rubber fuel line large enough to fit over the insulator and complete the unscrewing and removal with the hose. I also used the hose for installing the new plugs. I keep a 6" and a shorter section of hose in my box for just these purposes.
If you think these are bad, try changing Ford Triton plugs. Dennis

the hose should slip if the plug cross-threads, saving you a heli-coil job :evil:
One of the reasons I like to use them. And "taping a socket to an extension". I don't remember the exact job, but I still have aluminum duct tape on my 15MM socket from doing that. It held. Dennis
