I know that have it on the hoist now. Have done 4 so far. Have had to drill and tap the plug and drill the threads out on all 4 so far. 6 need changed but might as well do all 8. Looking for any other tricks I might not know about.

The truck has 90,000 on it. The SEL is on and they tested bad with a ohm meter. If it is left outside unplugged it doesnt want to start the greatest. Usually is inside so has not been to bad. Just want to get them done. I have 5 of them done. I am going to leave #8 it is the hardest to get to, but is still good. Still have to do #4 which I feel is the next hardest if I have to drilll it. I have had to drill all 5 out that I have done so far. I have aystem that seems to work, just very time consuming and nerve racking due to drilling into the aluminum head.
