Hi can anybody tell me where I can get a spark plug socket to fit my plugs in a 2200?
Thanks

The one I bought, draper or Britool was to larger to get on the plug. Had to put it on the lathe and turn it down.

Hi yes I have some but are too fat to fit throw the fins so I did not know if there was a special one.
