Hi Gary,

Do you mean something like Goop? Or Germ X Alcohol gel?

I think he means something with pumice like Gojo or Fast Orange, etc.
Edit: I'm not familiar with Goop, so it might work too.

Got my first Boo Boo. Thought I'd put the plugs back in till I can get new ones. Rubbed oil on threads and proceeded to put them in. All went well till the last plug. It cross threaded on me. After a couple of turns, it got hard to turn, so I backed it out. Not sure what to do.

You probably did more damage to the plug than the threads in the head. Same advise as before, chase the threads in the head to clean them up and put in new plugs. Be REAL CAREFUL to get the tap in straight!

I'm thinking of trying something like this. Is this what you mean, Jim?

Yes. That one looks (but may not be) exactly like mine.

Looks like mine also. I got mine at the local auto parts.

I checked at Oriely's, but they wanted 31 bucks for it.

Boy, it is Brrrrr Cold today, my old body doesn't do well when it's cold, so I'm just hugging the fireplace today. I miss the days when I ran around with no coat, cutoffs and bare feet. Those days are just distant memories now.

I got the thread chaser.

However....

Before Jumping in, I'm trying to think this through. I was going through my old posts and noticed my head gasket was weeping all those years ago. It never smoked and I never saw anything but a little coolant puddling down on the filter canister.

My thought process....Using this thread chaser has the potential to drop shavings on the piston. Correct? I plan to use grease, but still.

Would this be a good time to pull the head and replace that gasket? I hate to, but If I'm going to fix this thing, I'd sure like to do it right.

Head Gasket set is pricy at 60 bucks, but maybe it's what's needed.

Any thoughts? Help me think through this.
