If Ford’s poorly designed spark plugs would just all come out like these.
© DenLorsTools.com Lisle Spark Plug Extractor DLT Summary: The lucky guy that removed the spark plugs in the picture above, has someone watching over him, he narrowly escaped huge spark plug problems. We have orders everyday for specialty tools to remove broken spark plugs from Fords. The two piece spark plug typically comes apart, separating the main part of the spark plug from the huge electrode shield. Ford’s spark plug design comes under the heading “what were they thinking?”.
DenLors Tools was one of the first automotive tool suppliers to sell the Rotunda 303-1203 specialty tool that was recommended in the Ford TSB to remove these broken spark plugs when they were broken upon removal. Now, we have a much better solution in the LIS65600. The Lisle specialty tool has quickly became our most popular tool for removing Ford broken spark plugs. We have had only positive feedback from auto techs that have used this tool. Ford forums have recently been helping to spread the word of the success of this new tool. There is quite a buzz about a Ford class action suite regarding this poorly designed spark plug, but our role is to help those that are dealing with broken spark plug problems, to remove them as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
See the pictures below of the best tool for removing the broken electrode shield. I did a demo at a local shop to show how great this tool works. In fifteen minutes it was out and that was my first time using the tool.
Pusher in place, it screws into the spark plug hole and the center is ran down all the way.
Puller in place, after the porcelain is pushed down to allow access. Apply slight pressure so the self tapping tool can bite into the sleeve.
Notice the electrode is broken but holds the porcelain from going further, also the tool only goes so far.
