Today i decided to have a poke around inside the engine bay as i have had an annoying rattle for a long time (Crack in manifold i think...)
So i decided to take the cam cover off and have a look at the wear on the cam lobes to see if the noise would point to this, then i decided to take all 8 spark plugs out and have a look at the condition of those to see how the plugs are...
putting the plugs back in and i got to cylinder No. 3 exhaust spark plug, and after tightening it by hand i used a ratchet to tighten by hand... (I know, I know! shudda used a Torque Wrench!)
And i felt a crack as i was tightening it up!!!
This was the result of when i took the plug out and wiggled the thread ...
