Just a tip from an old air-cooled fanatic, first VW then Porsche.

After you fix that thread find a straight section of rubber hose that will snuggly fit the ceramic section of the plug then always screw your plugs in with this. You can better adjust for the correct angle and feel the plug running down in the threads. If you have it wrong the snug fit will not allow you to exert enough force to x-thread the plug. Follow-up with your socket wrench, only crushing the washer.

I never use a torque wrench on plugs.
