Ill be the 3rd. Lisle 65600. Cost about $100. Worth every penny. Has never left me down. Works well for every application that has those stupid spark plugs. Even used it on a Mustang.

I bought the Lisle kit and it's magical. Haven't broken a single plug yet. Been my experience if you remove the coil bolts, then take it for a quick drive to get it hot, the plugs will usually come right out. Do one side, start it up and let it run 5 minutes, then do other side.

Lisle works great. Have extracted dozens of broken plugs with it.

to go along with this I've found that once you get it hot spray down the plugs with carb cleaner and let it set for a half hour. As it cools down it gets the carb cleaner into the plug threads and loosens the carbon buildup.

I had a one with very difficult to remove plugs. Used Cal van Kit: cal-vantools​.​com/products/ford… and was able to do the Job. The good about this kit, it comes with a tap, to actually make threads in the broken sleeve, and later you screw a very good 4 of 5 turns of the extractor. The gripping is super. They screamed all the way out. Was very very stuck. Never replaced. I think…

…Alvaro, That tool is the closest to the OEM tool. We used green Loctite 530? maybe to set pins in the porcelain to pull them. The Lisle kit that pushes the porcelain down has a slight learning curve. If you push too far the tip splits and locks the steel casing in the head. Head removal is the only option at that point. For removal I like the OTC 6918 It clamps the porcelain to the hex body…

Great tool too!. I saw the video. Worth a try as well. You know, not all the time is the same scenario. Sad part is, we have to have this tool arsenal to deal with this problem. Thank You. Regards.

If you get the Lisle, go with the 65700 which includes the porcelain extractor.

I need to see which one i have. It's never been used. Been lucky or highly skilled. YMMV.
