Has anybody had the below issue with Denso plugs? This is now the 2nd plug top that has come loose! So loose you can just take the thing off with your fingers.

To try and solve the issue I have tightened them back up with a pair of plyers and then dabbed a tiny bit of lockright down the top of the cap so it soak down the first few threads.

:rolleyes:🙁

Always found denso plugs faul quickly...so we won't run them.
But to answer your question you should make it part of your check list every session or race to check/nipup the end of the plug. Just as important as your wheel nuts. Alot of vibration goes through the kit.

Cheers for the heads up Chris! I was advised to put a small crimp in the top nib with some side cutters to stop them coming loose, seems to of worked so far. I'll defo keep check on them/it though :giggle: 🏁
