Spark plugs are 13/16", most standard spark plug sockets are not deep enough for the military plugs, I use a spark plug wrench out of a motorcycle tool kit, you can pick one up at your local small engine shop.

The one they sell for MB/GPW's work just fine. Both the one that you use a 3/4" wrench on or the one with the rod. They are both deep enough
