spark plug socket update

I saw several posts saying the Sears/Craftsman 18mm socket part#44435 was the one to get. I stopped by my local Sears and they did not have that one, however, they did have a 3/8' drive 18mm spark plug socket part #50728 $4.79 and it worked just fine.
Now with new plugs and correctly adjusted fuel/air mix. its running great
Still need the TOC tensioners, esp on the rear cylinder, but that's next
