Guys: I had trouble getting a 7/8 inch deep well socket that was short
enough and thin-walled enough to get over the plugs on my RV10s and down
in the recess on my Cessna 206 (IO-520). A working solution was to buy
a Carlyle Socket Spark Plug SAE 7/8 in Part # CHT SSP3828 from NAPA and
have a machinist lathe out the barrel to .774 in (so the 206's Champion
RHB32E plug which has a greater diameter stem than the RV10's REM38E
would fit in the barrel) and Mill 3/8 in off the bottom end to shorten
it to 3 1/8 in. The plug cost $8.49 and my machinist charged me
$20.00. It does not have a built in magnet but it fits all 7/8 in plugs
and is as short as any 3/8 drive spark plug socket. It has a 7/8 in hex
drive at the top which can be torqued with a 3/8 in drive 7/8 in Flare
Nut Crowfoot Wrench (Sunex Tools 970818 $3.83 plus shipping) without
removing engine baffling. More useful than Aircraft Spruce's # 12-01693
which is 3 1/2 long.
