It's a PITA to change the #5 spark plug on my 454 with the header and steering box setup. I made my own custom spark plug socket by cutting it down about 25% and use and open end 13/16 wrench. It gets the job done, but anyone use anything else?

Thinking about purchasing and giving it a try the next time around:

Due to the angle of the counterbore that the plug fits down into and the surrounding head material, not to forget the header, I don't see that tool working. You said the modified socket and wrench get's the job done. I wouldn't waste the money.
