the oem one doesnt list it for some reason had to go to different manual but those are correct and upper is inside out also in two passes

Manifold retainers. Tighten them to 88 inch lbs. (10 Nm) using two passes.

So I was putting the distributor back in and I noticed that my mark is off crap so I was doing spark plugs and jacked the car up and the wheel turned a little so anyone know how to line it up there is only two positions that will work I belive. Also is there a trick for the center spark plug on the drivers side?

Disregard the Last post turns out when you turn the wheel it doesn't change anything ha ha ha I just figured I did somthing wrong. The distributer finally slipped into the correct spot. But I need to know do I need to move the steering colum in order to get that middle spark plug out on the drivers side

#3 spark plug is usually removed by pulling the shaft out or...like I do, persuade it upwards out of the way. You only need like 1/8" to squeeze your extension socket past it.

If you are using a spark plug socket, use a 5/8 wrench on the end of the socket.

I took 2 out of 3 bolts out to shift the gear box. Made it really easy to get the spark plug out. Does anybody know the torque on the 3 gear box bolts?

AutoZone, Advance Auto, etx all make a wobble spark plug socket made to easily get #3 plug out with minimal effort through the wheel well. I have used the tool and it is very easy, does not require any extra actions on your part to remove the #3 plug.

Here is the pricey snap-on version, I have seen clones of this under $10
