With the help of Sageuvagony detailed instructions and words of wisdom from those such as IgotTwo, Alec and others, I replaced the wires and plugs in my 96 EB. The biggest helper was the 3/8" hose to start the new plugs. Since I did not have a 5/8" plug socket, I first switched all wires, went to Grand Auto and got the correct socket and then started replacing the plugs. The wire for #4 plug was a little too short to my likens but I worked around it.

Now I remember why I enjoy working on my 1950 chevy 1/2 t pickup's engine. My wife and I can sit in the engine compartment, with lunch while I putz around. Here's an example of pure simplicity and beauty:

Guess how long it takes to replace those plugs and wires : - )


The Explorer doesn't even have room for a mutent salimander. I could not believe how much work (removing the tire well) it was to replace the passenger side plugs. Nevertheless, 3+ hours later, I had it up and running. Thanks to all for your great words of wisdom.....

Forgot to also mention to first steam clean your engine and wheel wells. You'll not regret the expense.
