I use a 5/8 plug socket with a built in universal joint and about a 6” extension

5/8 plug socket and a 3/8" wobble extension.

I used a 5/8 spark plug socket with the small extension. Loosen the plug, then pull out the extension leaving the socket and plug in the cylinder head. Then I insert my telescoping pencil magnet and fetch out the spark plug and socket

If your socket or anything ever falls in there and you can't retrieve it a good thing to do would be to blow compressed air in the weep hole.

Also you can use the sparkplug cap to retrieve the sparkplug.
Just a little bit of useless information.

Take the valve cover off. Makes it much easier.
