If a socket has an external hex at the back end, then instead 
of using the 3/8" rachet, a large box wrench can hold the socket/nut
in place.

A long 7mm hex would be needed here also.

Hmmm. I used a 7/8" spark plug socket (for my VW GTI strut top), I think it
was 22mm also. Is there really enough slack on those O2 sensor sockets to
make it fit (3/4" kinda = 19 mm)?
