The spark plug will break in 1 of 2 modes:
Mode 1: The ground electrode shield is left behind as an empty shell.
Mode 2: The porcelain center and ground electrode shield is left behind.
DO NOT DRIVE PORCELAIN DOWN INTO THE GROUND SHIELD AS FRAGMENTS MAY ENTER THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER.
ENGINE AND BONDING ADHESIVE MUST BE AT ROOM TEMPETURE OF 70 F (21 C) OR HIGHER FOR PROPER CURE AND BOND STRENGTH.
DO NOT REFUSE PINS. THIS ENSURES SURFACE CHARACTERISTICS FOR BONDING.
- Remove any remaining electrode material from broken porcelain using long needle nose reach pliers.
- Spray a good quality parts cleaner fluid into the porcelain hole for 2 to 4 seconds.
- Insert the pin into the adaptor. Thread shaft and tighten to lock in pin. Insert complete assembly into guide.
- Retract the adaptor and pin completely into the guide therefore protecting the pin.
