Aluminum Spark Plug Tubes

Looking for oil leaks I found five out of six spark plug tubes leaked into the plug area. The sixth was changed about a year ago and dry. The leaking five were easy to remove because the o-rings lost enough compression that the tubes could be rotated. The recently replaced one was difficult because of the smooth bore and taper left little grip even with a blind hole bearing puller. Instead of just replacing the o-rings I decided to make new tubes in aluminum with a groove at the end so a puller has some grip.



The manual says to push the tubes into place. I found they could not be pushed in by hand but I was able to press them in using the coil and mounting screws.
A little heavier than the plastic but they will not break when removing them.

Price would depend upon how many sets to make. The setup time has to be added in. What interest is there?

I'm interested, But it depends on the price. I just replaced my plastic tubes and o-rings, so I could wait for you to produce some or if the price is good, could pay in advance.
