Most plug sockets usually have a hex drive on the top/drive end so you can use a wrench or another socket on them to let the plug stick through the drive hole if needed. Sunex makes a set of extra deep spark plug sockets that are pretty inexpensive. Gray tools might have something similar as I see you are in Canada.
Gray pneumatic makes a double swivel set of plug sockets that are pretty handy as well.

there is a tube (perhaps having to do with the fording feature) that extends up past the positive contact point, so my socket will not go down far enough to engage the nut. thanks

I know this is an old post. Did you ever come up with a super deep socket.
I just ran into this very thing about 4 days ago.
I think you can just use a box end wrench once you get the top wire fitting off the top of the tube.
My problem initially was that while trying to take off the top fitting the plug actually started to come out.
