To avoid this in the future, try a 3' foot chunk of 3/8" fuel/pcv line. Push it down over the ribbed part of the plug and use the fuel line like an extension............... thread it in by hand.......when it stops (or if it jams) ,the fuel line will "strip" off the plug; no damage to threads............also makes a great "universal" to get around obstructions............this is an old trick we used to change plugs at the track............. on a hot engine equipped with headers......kept our fingers from getting burned!
