Porsche 914 Factory Tool Kit Spark Plug Wrenches

Simple Efficiency (At least Initially)

1970 through early 1973 model year Porsche 914 vehicles arrived from the factory with tool kits containing a two-piece, long shank spark plug wrench. The wrench is comprised of a straight tommy bar, 190 mm in length, and a 21 mm socket that is 210 mm long. Both pieces have a black oxide finish. The socket includes a rubber insert to secure and protect the spark plugs. The socket shank has four holes through which the tommy bar can be placed allowing for different reach requirements. Similar spark plug tools were provided in the tool sets of some concurrent Volkwagen models such as the single and crew-cab pickups. The VW spark plug sockets, however, were slightly shorter and had only two or three tommy bar holes in the shank.

This tool fell prey to cost-cutting measures during the 1973 model year production. Factory tool kits provided with the mid 1973 through 1976 Porsche 914 contain no spark plug wrench.
