" Image result for sizes of spark plug sockets
The Craftsman 4 piece spark plug socket set features the following
sizes: 5/8 in., 13/16 in., 3/4 in. and 18mm. Each one has 6 contact
So how come I have an 11/16" spark plug socket? Is that a fifth size?
And since when are there more than 2 sizes?
The Autolite 4164 that some people run on their Harley's is 11/16. Older
Harleys were 13/16 and the ones since 2000 or so are 5/8. Other people
run NKG's that are 18mm. 18mm and 11/16 are usually close enough. I
think 3/4 plugs are mostly lawnmowers and other small engines.
Don't you love standardization?
That would be nice. Surely two sizes are enough. Anyhow, i had
looked it up and the sparkplug for the scooter is 5/8, but the 11/16
socket I had worked.
I also have a set from 10 or 15 years ago I've never opened. I
figured it was cheaper to buy a whole extra set than buying good
replacement sockets every time i ruined or lost one. But I've not
taken off the shrink wrap. It has 5/8", if I'd needed it.
And what size socket fits the 8mm plugs used in the old Honda 125
twin?? If I remember correctly it was 13mm or 1/2 inch on the original
plugs, but that was a long time ago. I think NGK er9eh. / Champion

I'm not 100% sure, but when I changed the plugs on my Farmall M tractor,
I'm pretty sure they need a 7/8" socket. I know I had to use a deep
socket because I did not have an actual "spark plug socket".
