Free Advice:  If one pulls the engine to change the plugs, one will need a strong helper to use a socket to hold the plugs still and steady while you unscrew the engine off the plugs. That can't be done with engine in the car.

Then you have to figure out how to put the engine onto new plugs just "finger tight" before snugging them up.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dave Hall beat me to it.....

It is almost easier to drop the engine to get at the plugs. <G>

Besides I am dropping the engine to give it a once over anyway.  I want to
clean it all up, re-torque everything, might even pull the heads and
cylinders and check everything out inside too.  She deserves a little TLC...
