EZ Clean Spark Plug

I'll bet most of you aren't old enough to have seen a spark plug like this one I've got in my "Hell box".

The plugs in my '28 Chevy were "rebuildable" plugs as well. Lots of aircraft plugs too. None of them were pipe-thread though, thank goodness.
Some current plugs are 2 piece too - like the infamous plugs in the 5.7 Fords that come apart when you try to remove them.

Heh heh heh yeah they blow right out the heads sometimes. Where I worked had a genset with this engine. When it whistled I'd call the maintenance boss and describe it and the generator guy would fix it. Better than working under a hood... Hey Claire do they have to pull the engine to repair these on trucks?

Nope. Sometimes you need to pull the head, but the block stays in.MISERABLE critters though (OK stormy, I KNOW you are just dying to jump in with your "capital stupidity")

The Ford/Mazda 3.something V6 motors blow plugs too . Had an 01 Mazda Tribute <Ford Escape> blow one on the rear bank . I did some research , had the son that works at NAPA pick up parts . Then I hit the machine shop to make some guide bushings and other bits , drilled , tapped , and installed the insert with the head still on the motor . I figger I saved myself about 2500 bucks , shops I called all wanted to replace the head ... I didn't think it was all that bad - compared to replacing the clutch in a '62 Pontiac Tempest in a blizzard . The problem is that these heads have a short threaded section in a deep hole in the head , supposed to help start the plugs straight and prevent crossthreading . Overtighten one just once and you're screwed , because it'll be blowing out eventually .

Here's one of many Youtube movies of those Maytag gas powered washers. Those big motor driven wringer rollers prompted the warning to ladies, "Don't get your tit in the wringer."

When my brother was a toddler, he got his arm caught in our Maytag wringer. ..if I recall you had to whack them on top to release the spring pressure. No damage was done even though it reached his upper arm! Mom still went nut s! (micky, notice how I don't bore people with paragraph after paragraph)

My aunt had a wringer machine unit she was over 80 years old. The motor just ran the agitator. I can't remember if the wringer was electric or manual.
I'm sure here son, who made good money and was devoted to her, would have bought her something else. Finally it broke and they couldn't find a part, so she got the cheapest automatic made, with maybe 2 water levels, on or two cycles, and very limited choice of water temp. At ger 100th birthday party she stood for 2 hours to greet guests, even though there was a chair right there. Moved out of her house to assisted living at age 96 or so. Was the busiest person in the assisted living, and died about 104 or so. Wasn't overweight.

My vague recollection of the one wringer washer I used years and years ago was that you could crank it manually or you could "shift" it so it ran off the motor. It was at a forest service camp in the middle of nowhere and one weekend I started my wash and realized I had no detergent.. so I poured some AJAX and shampoo in for that load.
