Using such lubricants can result in over-torqued values with a torque-wrench by up to 20 percent! Virtually all modern spark plugs feature a special zinc-chromate shell plating which provides corrosion resistance to the elements. Spark plugs should be torqued/tightened down with a dry thread only. On spark plugs that feature a crush-able base gasket washer, be prepared for tightening to feel odd in the last stages as it's being crushed. Follow the instructions on the box that show you to finger tighten first and then rotate the amount shown afterwards with a wrench.
Only use a spark plug gapping tool which pulls on the ground electrodes neck to adjust the gap on precious metal spark plugs. The only time anti-seize compound should be used is on vintage spark plugs that have a non-coated, usually black surface. Other quantities are available in our shop. Simply search 1x, 2x, 3x etc before the spark plug part number. What's the Differences Between the Most Common NGK Spark Plug Ranges?
