    the head was fine but my SXI has 129.000 miles on her and i don't no if it has ever had new ones put in before so when i got the old ones out and when i went to put the new ones in they were so f**king tight. hence
    re-tapping them the lats thing i wanted to do was snap them in the head but now and i don't no why it take so long for it to start. but now the glow plug light does not come on now
