The whole operation is a bit finicky - but doable.
That plug is the same finicky plug I remember on my TE610-------always felt like it was going in crooked--and you had to work at it to get it straight----but always got it done without stripping it.
I remember a buddy was helping me change the oil on my TE one night and he had trouble and said he wanted me to do it as he thought it was just going in crooked------same old plug I guess. Just don't force it ever.
