Snap-On spark plug socket No. S9706KA works but is pricey, Lowe's used to
sell a Kobalt thin wall socket Model: 25889 that would fit, but I'm not sure
they still do. If you try most any cheap 5/8" deep socket (not a plug
socket with the rubber bushing around the insulator) I think you'll find it
will work but you'll probably want to get a locking extension to be able to
pull it back off. You could also take the plug socket you already own and
use a lathe to turn down the outside until it fits inside the valve cover.
Or you could just call your dealer and order 71-11-2-316-193 spark plug
