To answer tennisshoes question yes & yes got 5 of them allredy have been told corrosion buildup inside tube & around plug just not sure how to go @ this shops tell me $100-300 no straight up answer.

Ok use some diesel fuel and run a little down the tube and let it soak overnight if possible, the fuel should break down the corrosion and let you install the plug socket. Make sure you use some air pressure and blow out the tubes as you slowly remove the spark plugs, that will keep the crud from going into the cylinders, it will be messy so clean up before you fire it up after the repair.
