Default Spark Plugs

Is there an easy way to get to the back two spark plugs on an 83 Brougham without losing skin off the knuckles? They would be on the pasg side.

Yes, only if you're an SAE Certified Pontiac Mechanic circa 1983. But since probably no one here on the board is, I'd have to say to #1 wear some protective gloves to save you're knuckles and to reduce pain. And probably some extensions (long/short) to your ratchet along with possibly a universal adapter that might work

Thanks for the information. Were going to try and get to them underneath, but without a shop the weather plays a factor on how long my hands work properly.

I was thinking of going bottom up but I think the exhaust manifold might get in your way. The Montana weather this time of year can definitely influence your handywork. There are a few members here that have the same generation Bonneville as you and maybe they will chime in with their Spark Plug experience. Good Luck.
