thanks for the list glc, got a loaner 'Leslie Tool'
completed the plug change this AM

no broken plugs
I attribute this to letting the carb cleaner soak, and using a in & out motion to remove plugs
I followed the TSB, but I used Kroil, let it soak overnight before turning a plug

added more Kroil the next morning, turned each plug 1/4 turn and let it sit over night

then added MC carb cleaned to each plug in the AM, added a teaspoon full twice to each plug through the day and let it soak over night

next morning I slowly worked each plug back & forth, turned 2 turns added more carb cleaner and did the same to the next plug
went back to the first plug and each one came out

vacuumed the cylinder out of any liquid with a hose taped to the shop vac hose

added anti seize to the barrel installed the new plugs, boots & springs

3 days for soak
1 day install

runs like New
total cost = $132.43

2 cinder blocks and a 2x12 makes a good stool to stand on

I bought this Truck new in '06

other than routine maintenance and a set of tires
this is the first money I have had to spend on it
