Thanks Tom but one follow on Q --
If say one were to have listened to an internet expert / internet 'mech
bible' should one be in a rush to remove said anti-seize from their spark
plugs? Tightening would have been done with a torque wrench and so the core
issue per your below comments would be the temp range change.
Not that I know anyone would did do this :) >>
Of course it was your friend Ernie.
I would clean off whatever Anti-Seize that I could easily wipe off, and
reduce the torque setting on the NEW replacement plugs by 30%. The old plugs have
now been overtorqued*, so the seal between ceramic core and steel shell is
*When you lubricate a thread, the actual thread clamping force will increase
at the same torque wrench setting, so you must compensate for the lubed
thread by redcing the torque setting.
