Use a zip tie to remove stubborn spark plug boots

Post by wxo »

My time with Silvia has produced some positive ideas:
Pull stubborn and inaccessible spark plug boots by lassoing the boot with a long zip tie and using pliers to grab and pull on the zip tie to get the boot right off the plug. :idea:

It works best on 90° boots and it saves the boots from damage caused by tools used to grab them.
