They would get all fired up and raise cane about tapping out the heads and so forth...
Hey I remember those plugs. You had to cut the electrode end for the depth then use a die to thread them to the engine. Just like when they put the cardboard tube on them to protect the threads and electrode, you pushed it in til the threads grabbed then screwed it in. The tube compressed to make the gasket.
