awkward broken spark plug

Alright guys i changed my plugs and if course had a couple broken plugs. Well one plug did not break how they normally break. All the porcelain is still in tack. Only thing that came off was the house that screws into the cylinder wall. I called lisle to see what i could do an the guy said good luck. So i was wonder has anyone had this problem an what did they do to solve it. Im not taking the head off. Feed back would be greatly appreciated

Not too bad

Had the same thing happen on 2 of the 8. I broke the 2 plugs with a screwdriver and pulled them out with a thin pair of needle nose pliers. I used the screwdriver and pryed the plug sideways. Just be careful that you clean the hole out again before extracting to prevent ceramic from dropping down in. You might have to twist back and forth when pulling it out. Then, use the lisle tool just as you did on the others.

Thanks I just used some needle nose an came out. Came out fairly easy. I overlooked the problem way more than I should have
