timing plug size 10'-13'

4 posts in this topic

Just to help out ....


checked my valves and ran into the this issue with the lower timing plug on the left side being SO big


its a 14mm or aprox 9/16"


I didn't have a hex key that big so here ya go

go to your local Ace hardware and get a 3/8"x2:" (or whatever length)  hex head bolt and 2 nuts,

the head size of the bolt is 9/16" and with the 2 nuts you have rigged up a way to unscrew that timing cap plug

Good advice.  I'm actually doing a tear down on my 2011 tonight as a matter of fact and I was looking at this wondering how to get around buying an allen wrench that size.  I feel like a dunce not figuring this out myself!!

If I'm not mistaken, the small end of the original spark plug wrench will fit that.
