Nows the time for me to lick this one

I personally find the coil bolts are the hardest part of a plug change, (DS)
there has got to be a better longer extended head bolt
OR SOMETHING we can use that would save major time, ANYONE FIND ANYTHING ???
The last one on the Drivers Side took me FOREVER last time, I could have saved a good hour.


My thoughts would be and extended head, maybe with a simple thumb screw head,
OR SOMETHING ??? I heard there were some post on longer headed bolts over on another Forum,
(but can't find it), anyone ever heard or seen anything interesting re: this ?

I'd like to say, hey I should have thought of that, BUT I DID, just not fast enough I see :sad:
$66.00 for $4 worth of Bolts, WOW can you say MASSIVE MARK UP, but still worth it if it'll save me as much time as I KNOW IT WILL

U Da Man KB Zilla, thanks............

What about changing to a stud and leave it in the manifold. So many have had story's of twisting the heads off etc.

I thought by leaving a stud in you could use whatever style nut you want and it could be steel on steel and be less trouble.

This guy has a great idea to.

I don't think the bolts are bad at all. The trick to the fuel pressure regulator one is to loosen it with a 7mm wrench. Them put your finger on one side of the fuel rail and thumb on the other.........like you are gonna grab the rail.......and twist it out with your fingers. Extensions and swivels make the job easier. The other trick i use is to leave the bolts sitting in the coil pack when i remove/install it.

gokorn1,

Please keep us informed! I am curious to see if they have a setup like that! THIS COULD BE A LIFE/TIMESAVER for us all in dealing with those pesky coil pack bolts! :D

Daaaayum G! You never miss a beat, bro. Pretty cool idea with the wing nuts on top. Probably get better torque with those babies by hand. How much you asking for these?

I was @ NAPA and picked up a 1/4" flexible shaft extension. I'd guess it's about 4" in length. With this extension I can easily have all of the stock COP bolts removed out of the truck in record time. I'd guess 10-15 minutes tops @ a leisurely pace.

It looks similar to this one.



A quick google search led me to this....Only $2.95

It sure made the job a lot easier. I no longer dread having to change plugs anymore.
