I got a SSG here that replaced his plugs in a 05 F150 and the threaded part of the plug came out but the porcilan and the rest of the plug is still in the hole. it is a motorcraft platinum PZT2F 41. The only suggestion I have is put a rubber hose on the insulator and pull the ignition fuse and crank it over to blow it out. I'm sure there is a better way and you guys will have the answer.

Nope Steve that is what they refer to as a high thread spark plug that Ford uses on the 3v Triton motors. They look like this

The shield gets seized in the head and separates from the plug. I have the tools to extract it with and I have done a bunch of them. Sometimes the head has to come off but so far I'm batting 1000 with doing the job without removing the head. So how many did he break?

Oh yeah, no matter how much cranking he does it won't blow that part of the plug out, in fact it won't blow it out if he had it running.

That be the plug. I guess that was one of those better ideas? #-o ;-) So far only 1. He bought the truck used. Some one mentioned a kit, so he looked it up on the internet. $69. He said he was thinking of buying it cause he planned on keeping the truck. LOL Dang he just walked in with a kit. O:) I told him what you said and he said how much? You can PM me that info. ;-) When you put replacements in what plug should he use that doesn't cause this?

I don't know what "kit" he bought but there is a kit for the stripped plugs that blow out of the non 3v tritons. If that's what he bought it won't help him any on the 3v motor. That and I have seen people ruin heads on the stripped thread deal with those kits. Chances are at least 4 more of those plugs will break when he tries to remove them. I'll PM you some prices.

Champion makes a plug that is supposed to be one piece that won't break but I don't like champion plugs at all.


Edit:
If he does attempt that himself he will want to be careful not to get any pieces down in the cylinder. You have both porcelean and the outer steel sleeve to deal with.
