A bad day is when you install a new spark plug in the block and this happens BEFORE you get to the torque spec.  Yep NEW (Never Ever Worked).

Is that an NGK plug?  Usually they're high quality.

Sure you didn't pick up a ft/lb wrench instead of an in/lb?  LOL

Yep, NGK.  I wish it was that simple.  Installed all the plugs and started to tighten to spec.  The last one got about half way to torque spec and snapped.  First time in 50 years has that happened.  Easy out saved the day.  But SIL ( son in law) was holding his breath thinking now what!

When it comes to plugs, there is nothing like pulling out the infamous Ford Triton two piece plugs. Always a good chance of a mishap. 

Yep, that was one instance in which Ford really screwed the pooch.
I installed a set of Timeserts in a friends V-10 Excursion after it blew out a plug, and it was a major PITA.
