Re: spark plug spat out
I'm not saying it can't be done without the head off, but there's the bodging way and the proper way, and let's just say bodging always cost's more on Alfas in the long run (look and cambelt failures for example).
Also let's say that you rely on the swarf being blown out the exhaust... Well what if it gets half way and it traped by the valve, sticks and is battered into the valve seat, continually battered by the valve, though the alloy is softer, with the heat it will deform the valve and eventually deform the valve and wear the cam.
