Looks Like this is what I plan to do to my Greenbrier #6 spark plug hole. Never done this before, I will use this as guide and ask Rick to help me.

Matt:

I put JP's info into a document and PDF'd it for the forum. Check your email.

I will be doing this same repair in a few weeks on my Greenbrier.

Question, what do you do if the bad spark plug hole is to big? I bought the Time=Sert kit from Clarks and the tap just slides in. It wont cut threads.

The Big Sert tool will work only if your spark plug hole is less than .660 If it's larger than that you might want to find another head.

Good luck, let us know how it turns out

Great information from all.

John, next time make photos smaller so they do not blow past the width of the post. That makes it easier to read without scrolling.

Good note on the tool rental of the Big sert tool. Thanks, Marty! I bought the regular Timesert kit from Clarks, but the Big sert kit is really expensive for a not very often used tool! (PS - That is not an excuse I use very often around here!)

Just a note for those that have good threads. When installing a sparkplug in aluminum you should you the copper based antiseize on the threads and not the aluminum based. I have seen the silver colored aluminum based used on aluminum parts and it is almost just as bad as not using anything. Do not use too much either just a lite brush across one side of the threads should suffice. It will spread out when you screw the plug in.
