Spark plug repair 4.6 Triton engine
Hello guys, as promised I would post some pictures of the repair i did on my 4.6 engine.
Two months ago I blew the# 3 plug out of the head which stripped all treads and noticed that the other side,#7 also was getting close to it.
Both # 3 and #7 at the same time, after reading forums about this it turned out that it was pretty common .
Regular repair at the Ford dealer was approx $3,500 for both cylinders. I purchased a over the fender repair kit for approx $ 400 which gave me 5 inserts, I only used two for now.
I fixed the #3 last month and this weekend the #7 cylinder. After the the first repair I think I got more experience because this weekend the repair only took 3 hours(even with taking out a cross treaded plug) compared to 7 hours the first time.
I promised to post some pictures when I would repair it.
well have a look at my gallery and if you guys have questions about it I would be happy to answer them
