Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

I'm having a hard time picturing this. If most of the plug came off with the plugwire that means, I would think, the ceramic part?? I can't picture why there is nothing else left. Are you saying it's just deteriorated through rust enough that you can't get a plugwrench on it or what? If there's enough left of the plug to tig weld a nut to, that's one way. The heat from the welding process should loosen up whats left IF there's something there to weld to....CAUTION, would be alot easier (and safer) with the head off like Bill says, but it could be done with it on the engine...BE SURE TO TAKE PROPER PRECAUTIONS AND BE AWARE OF ANY PLACE A STRAY SPARK COULD FALL..BEST LEFT TO A SHOP THAT IS EXPERIENCED!!
