Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
What brand spark plugs do you have in this engine?
Let me know
Are you still getting a misfire or running ruff issue after inspecting the spark plug?
The spark plug socket I use has a rubber boot on it to hold the plug. You can try to put the plug on the socket and put a piece of tape around the end of the socket to hold the plug so it doesn't drop and pinch to tip.
You should be able to get right to the plug. But as far as reaching it, maybe put some tape on the inside of the socket to see if it can grab it.
Injectors are rare to cause misfire issues on these engines. The most common if it's not a plug, is the distributor.
Let me know how you make out
ordering the Cap and Rotor for a distributor issue is not the answer I gave you. When I say Distributor, I mean the Whole Distributor. After Market ones are not recommended. So until you replace the distributor, you will keep having misfire and running issues.
It is very easy to mess up the timing. You have to pay attention to the Rotor Position before you remove the distributor so you can install the new one in the same spot, then you need a timing light to set the timing 15 degree's above top dead center.
If you grab the EGR diaphram while the truck is idling, and lift it does it stall the truck?
If it doesn't stall, you need a EGR. It should stall if you lift up that diaphragm
Then you need a EGR valve
Just the EGR is all you need
