Re: K-jet thanks, trans plugs
I hope it is not the same as the oil drain plug. The 17mm hex head is
quite a bit smaller than the threaded portion. When I got my Coupe
last year the dealer overtorqued it and I had to cut it off. Hours
and hours of fun. I had to drill sideways through the hex head, put a
hardened drill bit through it, heat it and grab it with a pair of vice
grips. I even had to attach a breaker bar to the vice grips.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my question about the idle mix tool. I'll
pick up a long 3mm hex wrench this weekend.
Here's another one: I bought several quarts of the fabled Redline gear oil
this weekend. Imagine my dismay when I discovered that I could not BUDGE
the stupid drain and fill plugs on the transaxle and rear end. They take a
monster 17mm hex wrench, which I have, but I applied every fiber of my
being in several different contortions to try and loosen them, but no go.
Is there some trick to getting them out? Or am I just a big wuss. And yes,
I'll make sure I can remove the fill plug BEFORE I remove the drain plug.
Aaaaaand I'm still lookin' for a 2/3 worn Dunlop SP8000 size 215/50-15.
