MG TD TF 1500 - LooseTips on Spark Plugs
|How can I keep the screw-on tips on spark plugs from becoming loose? They don't completely unscrew; just a turn or two. Has not affected performance. Champion N5C non-resistor plugs.|
Just use a spot of Locktite and they should not unscrew. If you have some JB weld a dab-will do-you.
|Hi Sandy -|
I was concerned that Lok-Tite or JB Weld would hurt conductivity.
|Give them a twist with a pair of pliers. Always works for me. It doesn't take much torque.|
|Sweat solder them|

|Just take a pair of dikes( side cutters ) and "bite" a couple threads cross ways. Then use a pair of plyers to tighten the tip.|
|Funny, just had to do this to a couple plugs today. I just tighten them gently with a set of slim nosed pliers.|
|I'm with the pliers solution. Just like tightening a nut. Simple & completely reversible. Cheers|

|I also never had a problem if I tightened them with a pliers. Regards. Tom|
