I got the worst luck lately. I picked up my fresh head right. set it on the garage floor on my soft creeper seat and bumped my work table tring to squeeze around my car to put it back on jack stands and knocked off my turbo and smash right onto my head(my cars head). It was about a 3 ft fall. To make this shorter I bent one of my spark plug tube lips. I was so pissed I just looked at every thing and turned the light out and went in the house. I'm not sure if I cand bend it back and if I did it'll look like shit and possibly leak to boot. Can you replace the tube.I looked in fsm and nothing.

I'm talking bout the gold tube not the rubber seal. Any Ideas would be great.
And maybe some 4 leaf clovers and horse shoes and rabbit feet the murder of all black cats in a 50 mile radius were I live. yada yada. I'm bummed.

Use a deep well socket, insert it part way in the tub, and hammer it against the bent part. You should be able to straighten it out enough!

Thanks for the sugestion. But man do you sleep?... So I take they are not replacable. That sounds good. I was looking for a tube or pipe expander that small but with no luck yet. If the seal is below the damaged area do you think I could grind it out as long as I plug the tube up so no shavings get into it. Its pretty wrinkled.
