You can't put enough torque on the plug to cross thread it when using the hose. I use this trick to start the plugs on all my cars where I can't put my fingers on the plug. I spin them all the way down to the gasket before putting a wrench on them.4kids3fish said:By the sound of that I'd be making double-sure that the plug threads correctly on the way back in & doesn't cross-thread. Try lubing the threads with some WD40 so that you can "spin" the plug with your fingers while it is still on the flex-tubing. If it gets tight straight away DON'T put the ratchet on - take it out and try again.
I look forward to doing these contortions myself in the VERY NEAR FUTURE (do you hear that Mondial 3.2 owners? C'mon! I'll love your car more that you ever could so sell it to me NOW!) :green:
(I think I'm getting a bit twitchy about this Ferrari thing - 372 posts and not a car in sight, dammit!)
