Hi this is Jon and in this clip we'll be cleaning and replacing the spark plugs. On your snowblower engine it's always recommended to replace your spark plug at the end of each season so you have a new one for the next season. Now if you want to save just a couple of dollars what you can do is you can also clean it. The first thing you need to do is remove the spark plug boot which is typically right on top of your engine and that will show you the spark plug underneath it. Next we're going to be using a spark plug socket. Now this socket is a deep socket and if you look inside of it there is a little rubber ring or rubber holder inside of it and that's going to hold the spark plug in there as you pull it out. We'll go ahead and loosen that spark plug up. Now remember, righty tighty lefty loosey. And as you can see that spark plug socket held that spark plug in there. Now if your spark plug looks damaged or cracked or broken in anyway you'll definitely want to replace that. To reinstall the spark plug you'll want to start it by hand to make that you don't cross thread it. Then we're going to come in with our ratchet and tighten that down. And don't forget to replace that spark plug boot.
