    removing plugs

    how do i remove the spark plugs, they seem like there in there real tight, i dont want to break anything. If water has been in an engine for 24hrs, is it basically screwed

    I have to say, You got my attention with your name.

    Remove spark plugs with 5/8 plug socket and extention. Get a good bite and put some umph. in it.
    If is salt water your time us counting down very fast. Get the water out of motor ASAP.

    Good Luck! And welcome to the forum.

    when replacing ...put some anti seize on the new spark plug threads so they come out easier next time.

    anti-seize is a MUST!!! it is worth the few bucks and the 30 extra seconds per plug, especially in corrosive environments.
