Grind down the spark plug socket as necessary to allow it to fit.
A 12 point deep socket may work better. They have thinner walls.
Take the belts off of the circulating pump and spin it by hand. If it’s noisy, I’d replace it.
And at 300 hours, I’d say you are more than...

Can you Just make templates with what you have?
eBay, Amazon, carb rebuild kit, google, something should pop up.
