Jaguar V12 H.E.
Spark Plug Socket
Of course, using a 3/8" drive ratchet, extensions, and swivel works just great on several of the other spark plugs. So, you need to obtain two 5/8" spark plug sockets, one to hack on and one to leave as is.
This particular socket is a Thorsen, the brand sold at Discount Auto Parts. Such sockets are common, though, and presumably any decent one will do for this job.
Sorry, haven't actually completed this mod yet, so more pictures will
have to wait. However, it's easy enough to describe the plan: put
this socket on a plug, and cut away all of the bottom end of the socket
that extends beyond the flats on the plug. Then cut the top end off
as well, leaving only enough of that hex to get a box end wrench on.
Then try it on the plugs in the car, and if necessary grind a little more
off one corner or some such.
