Ok, that works. Just had to try harder. :-) THANKS.
BTW the best way to get at that back plug on drivers side is thru the wheel well
with a loong extension. You may have to jack her up a bit. Saw a mechanic do it
I still have scars (literally) from the last time I tried to do it any other
way. My dearly beloved came home as I was finishing the driver's side,
wanted to know why I hadn't jacked it up a little and gone in through the
wheel well? 'Cause he was usin' my freakin' jack to hold up a building!
(Accompanied by intemperate language...) He felt so bad he finished it up
for me. (The easy side, but better than nothing.)
Yes it's a nasty job. (you know the rest).
Only other vehicle I had a plug changing issue with was a 67 Chevelle 396. Same
issue with back plug on drivers side. Not as bad though. Just had to get the
socket on it and then put an open end wrench on the socket.
Oh I had the wheel off when I did mine, but the steering column was
perfectly in front of the plug. I had to use a stub socket and one
universal, then I couldn't get it back off because of the column again. Fun
stuff. It dropped out on top of the skid plate when I wasn't even touching
it of course.
