Thread damage on #4 Cylinder

I can't believe what has happened... I did a full tune up and when I tried to install the #4 spark plug I could only get it to turn 3-4 turns and it just get real tight. I did all of the other one by hand first and then tighten them down with a ratchet with no problem.

My question is has anyone used this http://www.back-tap.com/ on the #4 cylinder? I need to know if it will fit being 6" long.

I have never used this tool, but I have a spark hole rethreading tool that I use sometimes when I get into a jam. The two big problems you will run into will be getting the tool aligned properly, and not getting metal chips into the combustion chamber. A little grease on the tool may help the shavings adhere to the tool instead of falling into the chamber.
Good luck

Well the good thing about this tool is it works from the inside out so anything that comes loose will come up with the tool. My only problem is getting the tool to fit being 6" long. I had to order it so I should have it by Saturday.
