this was sort of what i was aiming for...

yes something can fall off and get in the spark plug hole, but realistically , the same can happen if you have a leak , the oil and grime , just as well can end up in the hole..

RTV or Sillicone, neither of them pose a real threat , not even if they would fall in the spark plug hole( while replacing plugs for example) cause it would simply burn up , at worst you're looking at a maybe 2 gram piece of relatively soft compound

at best is keeps the camhousing seriously leak free....
