Thread OK and chased just to make sure. And no anti seize on them. Suppose to be about 11-12lb 132in an had to use 18in bar on 10 ratchet, lot of torque. Think cause soaked keep from pulling threads.

Thanks. Just got done with left bank plugs. Will check out sites as prepare to disassemble right side for plugs.
Think if knew this issue, would have cut and braced openings in wheel wells for access.
