599 Re-build opportunity (Not mine)

$500 looks fair enough to fix up

How does a spark plug 'blow out'?

My guess, human error. Some fool either over tightened the spark plug stressing or even started to strip the threads. Or they somehow cross threaded the plug.

Assuming the threads are FUBAR, what options are there? I can't imagine you can Heli-Coil or Time-Sert a spark plug.

I just did a Google search. Apparently you can helicoil or timesert a spark plug? I'd probably try and find a second hand head.

If it were closer I'd consider it. Good thing it's not, as I really don't have time as it is.
