Well, I guess it's always the simplest of projects that seem to take the most time. Anyway, went to change out my plugs yesterday (thanks to all of you for the info) and encountered a minor problem........the ba*tartds will not come out!!!!! I mean, they will not budge, almost like they are siezed or something. I've heard of problems getting original plugs out, but this is rediculous. I've worked them about as hard as I dare for fear of breaking one off in there (a whole new problem I don't want to deal with). I mean the way it feels now, I think I'd have to go after them with a breaker bar, not something I've ever really had to do. And, yes, I have a correct plug socket that is seating all the way onto the shoulder of the plug (as far as I can tell). I even called a buddy to make sure I wasn't screwed up in how they thread, being my first mod motor (you know left to loosen, right to tighten...LOL). About the only thing I can think of to do is to get a little penetrating oil down in there and let it set for a few hours, hopefully then I can break them loose. Get them out and go in there with a plug chaser and clean out the threads. The only other option is to run her up to the shop I use occasionally and see if they can get them out with an air gun (my compressor's being repaired). Have any of you guys encountered this problem? Sure would appreciate any help you guys could offer.
