I'm in for the beer drinking and sideline advice givingThe last thing I want to do is remove the head. That will take me all of 2 days and about 36+ beers, plus I don't have all the knowledge to put it all back together. I can break stuff good but not put that stuff back together.
its a 1997 with the 4.6. I believe it predates the 3v issues.
with that being said i wonder if the same tool would work in this situation
oh snap, yeah thats true. i just saw "ford" and "broken spark plug" and that usually means isle tool lol.
heres a nice write up on generic spark plug removal. https://www.championautoparts.com/Technical/Tech-Tips/Removing-Broken-Spark-Plug.html
