    Hey Toddstar, the Yanks must call Penetrene "Liquid Wrench It" as Craig has kindly suggested.

    Bugger. There is probably no harm increasing the size of the hole and inserting a bit of wire with a hook on the end and removing the carbon built up on the exposed thread on the plug.

    Are you able to drill a hole into the centre of the plug - mentioned use of easy-out? I have used a product in the past from loctite which is a freeze agent. The concept is to lower the temp of the plug and have it contract, more or less the reverse of the warm engine approach. Of course if you have deformed the threads or managed to even slightly cross threaded them this won't help. Nuke the plug via the hole then get straight onto it with a big breaker bar wrench/socket or even a powerful 240v impact gun. Once it moves, don't stop, then address any issues with thread later, that would be my approach.

    Just reading and was about to suggest a can of Freeze all or what ever they call it these days.
    Happened to me years ago on a T120 triumph spark plug,previous owner cross threaded it grrrr
    Penetrene is a great product, is there any way you can "shock" the plug to help break the seal.
    But what a biatch eh one plug grounding you, it will probaly require a helicoil anyway 14mm x 1.5 pitch
    if I was close by I'd lend a hand but ...........two heads better than one
    04 ST 3lt auto, not enough Mods to keep me happy, but getting there

    Thanks @garett for the offer, I'm going 2 give the Loctite freeze and release that Phil (@PBBIZ2) mentioned a go

    http://www.loctite.com.au/3320_AUE_H...=8802649931777

    If that fails I might burn it or turn it into a big BBQ

    And thanks to everyone for the suggestions
