Hi Isaac, I guess your problem is that the plug has broken off inside the plug tube and you need to remove it. If it broke off while you were replacing it, (fitting a new one) has it cross threaded and damaged the cylinder head? If so you'll need to force on the plug wrench past the damaged electrode and loosen it the normal way. If the threads have been damaged, you may need to remove the head. I know there is a Locktite product which is used to repair damaged threads, but as we have never seen it here and I don't know how well it works? If the plug ceramic part broke off during fitting you'll need to do the same. Force the wrench down onto the faces of the plug and removal. Taking it out from the tube will need some fiddling around with a long nosed pliers or a rubber tube. Once loose push the tube onto the end (which will be difficult if its bent. Just take your time. Regards John
New tubes are available from Goodman's, 10914 NW 33rd Suite 107, Miami, FL 33172. Tele: 305 278 8822. If you broke just the ceramic outer tube, it will still work alright. The purpose of that cermaic tube was to prevent the hot water being perked up the stem from heating the other water that hasn't been perked yet.....
