1990's econoline spark plug change?

Ok folks I have a problem on my hands? I could only change 6 out of the 8 spark plugs the front 2 on the left hand side of the motor are impossible to get at? The front spark plug on the right hand side took me nearly 2 hours!!! So me being very cheap I refuse to give up any help or should I just take it in?

I wouldn't give up. Regardless of who does the work, SOMEBODY has to get to those plugs SOMEWAY, SOMEHOW.
I'm not familiar with your situation, but a lot of times you have to remove/unmount/unbolt something to get to them, could be an alternator, or maybe and A/C compressor.
There may be a trick somebody here knows, but a lot of times if you just stop and study the situation, a clever solution will present itself.

I have done many, ugh you can get to the front plug from under the hood and a long arm. Second back you can use a plug socket, very short extension (available from snap-on as the chraftsman shorty is to long) and a flex head ratchet. You may need to move gas pedal! Hope this helps

Go thru the inner fender on the left side, use a socket that has the swivel built on to it with a long extension.

Hey grizzly I ordered that float like you suggested so fingers crossed that gets it fixed! And yes it was that rubber line that was leaking but I did give up and take it in for the last 2 plugs for 70 bucks its well worth the money!!

When you have the tank down to put the float in make sure you look at the rubber line that goes between the pump and the steel line of the sending unit, mine was all cracked, I also changed my pump when i was in there.
