That works too, but I think it's easier to get them out from the bottom hole.

Ditto


Crank the engine around to get to the rest.

Thank you guys for the input. I was able to get to them from the opposite side of the starter a lot easier( thanks huj). But as forthe socket I had to use a 9/16 cuz they were already buggered up pretty bad. But I got the engine out lastnight and all stripped to be used as a core.

That's what "flame wrenches" are for.
