I have no problems using a wrench, crescent wrench, or O2 socket (which you can buy at the auto parts store for under 10 bucks). Your choice. Sounds like you have too long of a wrench.

crescent wrench got the job done. All I needed was for it to be broken loose a little....Came out by hand the rest of the way. Couldn't have done it without my nomex arm sleeves though. Thanks all for your help.

Very sincerely,

-IKZ

Here is a video...the O2 looks to be in bad condition....hopefully this helps a lot.

Just as a "by the way", I got my O2 socket at Sears, for under 10 bucks. I may not use it much, but for the price it'* a definite "nice to have"

That O2 is ok.... Engine looks to be burning good...

What did you replace it with?

And was it a 3 wire or a 1 wire?

For some reason I couldn't get your video to work. Other putfile videos run just fine. Am I missing something?

And I'll second the question. What brand O2 did you put back in?
