Had to have the thing re-tapped, and probably got chucks of stuff into the cylinder. Coat 'em with anti-sieze, and screw 'em in gently! Just use the socket or torque wrench to snug them up.

That is why OEM Spark Plugs have a coating on them if the product goes into a aluminum head. It's not a goop you can see, just a very light coating and it's clear.
