Re: oilheads-digest V2 #262

Gosh o mighty.  Been an aircraft mechanic for a zillion years.  Deal almost 
exlcusively with piston engines with aluminum cylinder heads.  Both Lycoming 
and Continental specify antiseize and if you don't use it the plugs howl 
their displeasure when you remove them.  Definitely a good idea to use a bit 
of antiseize on the threads.  The torgue thing is way overblown on this. 
Really if  you can't screw a sparkplug in......Or if you're a person that if 
the manual says stand on your head when you do something and then you 
actually try to stand on your head then maybe maintenance is best left to 
someone else lol.  I thought everyone like that worked for the government
