7/8" Mega-Bushing Installation Suggestions
This bushing has oil on it. It will need to be thoroughly cleaned before installing.
Drill the blown hole to 49/64 for a 7/8 tap.
Tap the blown hole to 7/8-9. A tapered tap will start easier than a plug tap, but either will work.
Use a 12-point socket on the head of the tap. You will not be able to use a tap handle.
After tapping the spark plug hole, unhook the ignition and crank the engine a few rounds to blow any chips that fell in the cylinder. Or, use a small adapter on a shop-vac.
Clean and dry the new threads, and the bushing thoroughly.
Screw your NEW spark plug into the adapter.
Apply JB-Weld to the external adapter threads, (NOT to the spark plug threreads) and screw it into the hole and tighten with a spark plug socket.
Let the JB-weld cure for 24 hours before starting your engine.
NOTE: JB-Weld also has a quick-set formula which can cut the waiting time down to a few hours.
Good luck with your repair!
