I cut the wires and used a deep socket, 1/2" drive and a 2-foot breaker bar
with another couple feet of pipe over the handle to get my first V8 O2
sensor out.  A real PITA lying on your back with the car on jackstands.
The sensor was so fixed in place it left its threads in the exhaust bung.
I then had to get a thread chaser and clean out the threads before I could
install the new sensor.
