this is really common with those plugs. There are pullers out there which can extract the broken shell from the head.

I bought the Lisle spark plug remover tool but the whole plug is in there. Just the threaded part came off the plug. Is there a different tool that can grab ahold of the plug and I can pull it out?

Please don't take this the wrong way cause I mean no offense.. But did you not read the thousands of dreadful stories of these plugs breaking.. It takes a LOT of patience or the early s197's for these plugs to come out in one piece. Next time you will know on the 2 piece autolites. To answer yor question the listle tool kit includes all the tools needed to remove all the way these plugs break.

@ drewsky....yes I read all the stories about these plugs which means i did all the stuff you are suppose to do before hand. No one ever showed a pic of a "broken" plug before or showed how to get said plug out. Everyone just says buy the tool. Well the tool comes with zero instructions. I watched a you tube video with someone using the tool but it was on a plug that was really broken, like the porcelain part of the plug was broke off. So how do I break off the porcelain part of the plug? I can barely get a pair of needle nose pliers down the hole. Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.

I wonder if you can use one of those magnetic pick up tools?

I have a pair of needle nose pliers that i tried to use. I got a hold of the top of the spark plug but couldnt pull it out. I couldnt get a good grip. Not much room in there.

if it were me, i'd put something down the hole beside the plug to use as a lever to break the porcelain. maybe a wooden dowel from home depot. anything that will fit tighten between the wall and plug should break it.

Being the stubborn sob that I am, i'd probably first buy a pair of really long vise grips.
