[snip question about removing popped plugs and magnetism]
I think the stock plugs are brass, as well. The trick is to realize
they popped before they go anywhere. One of the ones I popped (I
popped a few) ended up falling down and swirling around and ended up
behind the clutch basket, I believe. All I can really remember about
the ordeal was a lot of stress and a lot of slowly turning the motor
FWIW, I did what I could to spread the flange on the plugs that came
out then sealed them in with some sort of sealant. Toyota 100 bond?
It's hardly a strong testimony, but since the "fix" I put on a pretty
full season with no problems.
