MG MGA - Core Plugs
|First start of my Coupe for 16 years and after 10 minutes warm up the core plug between number 2 and 3 spark plugs blew out.|
Does anyone please have any suggestions on the best jointing compound to use to bed the new core plug?
|It wasn't tight enough. They need to be flattened evenly to stay tight and seal.|
I use a little silicon sealant - very little indeed - around the edge, but its getting the plug evenly flat that makes it leak free.

|Thanks Dominic and Barney.|
I have put the new plug in with a smear of silicone.
I drilled a 10mm hole in the centre of the old plug and put this in after the new one to act as a guide for the punch as there is not much room for error with a big hammer and the engine in situ.
