      Auto-store: "Be sure to get some anti-seize."
      Me: "Not needed, but thanks."
      Auto-store: "You'll be sorry when they get stuck"
      Me: "OK"


      Every. Damn. Time.

      What do you use to clean the threads out in the head? or do you just clean the threads on the plugs?

      If you make it, they will come.

      There is a lot of junk on this forum, but there is a lot of good information too. I hope these FAQ's I put together helps filter the good stuff from the bad for the average user.

      I use antiseize everytime. Just a habit. Probably not that important.

      I have used anti-seize on spark plugs for 10years and never broken a single plug. And after 40k miles they come right out and dont break coming out.

      the car is on an inclined driveway and up on jack stands in the front only

      In my case I have never used antiseize over the past 15 or more years of doing all my own maintenance and I have never had a problem. The only problems I've ever seen are from others who crank rediculously hard on their spark plugs because they don't know better.

      indeed, a dab of anti-seize and torque them down correctly... done!

      Both VW and Toyota both state though not to use antisieze.
      Then again, when you go 120k on plugs, they dont come out very easy. I have broken a few ones taking them out for the first time due to soo much carbon buildup on them. Especially ford triton 3v engines, dumb design, always break off.

      nice lil read.FWIW, i never use anti-sleaze on a plug.

      and never broke one.

      and i use my Armstrong torque gauge when installing (i go by feel)

      i change my plugs about every 15 miles of use or so. (that is about two track days)

      then again, on a drag car on my level plugs are a consumable at this point. i make around 6 passes at 9 seconds and change them. or do 5-6 dyno pulls and use two sets. the plugs i use are ultra cheap, too. i buy them in bulk and pay around $1.79 each for them!

      NGK R5671A-9 gapped to .020. pushing >43 psi on a rather large frame turbo and making well >800 AWHP.

      FWIW, not that i know anything! oh yeah, i like Widmer Hef (its local to me ) with a cut of lemon in it, whilst working on said racecar!
