I know what you all are saying, who uses a torque to tighten spark plug. Well I need to know because I am replacing a sleeve that was inserted on one of my plugs before I bought truck. So now after all this is done I can have a fresh plug again. Oh, old sleeve was frozen to the old plug. I'm using a cylinder head rethreader kit made by KD tools Part number 2125. I chased the threads with a tap and they cleaned up really well. I took a vacuum cleaner and adapted a step down to a flex hose to quarter inch diameter and made a pre filter in the hose, then vacuumed out any loose shavings out of cylinder. i caught most shavings on the oiled tap. I have 1993 t-100 v6 194

According to the FSM, 13 ft lbs fer spark plug to cylinder head torque specs. Try it at that and double check the value after 50 miles.
