I agree.  Also, overtightening can break them.  BUT, don't be so worried about overtightening that you leave them too loose.
 
And, if you have HP manifolds, HAVE FUN!!!

Well I did it.  I went down there.  The picture of the spark plug was the good one.
 
As far as the rest wrong with his car

Well, I took 'er for a spin once ya left Hobby.....what a mistake that was.  I didn't make it but maybe 1/4 a mile and she stalled on me   I called Mobby and let him know that the Holley was comin off ASAP ( )  so hopefully on Monday we're gonna do a little switcheroo and throw on a nice Edelbrock.  Hopefully that'll smooth things out and fix that vacuum leak between the carb and manifold....

Mobby?  You're lucky
 
Mike can push that through warranty , so you're getting away with murder.
 
You said that fuel filter was the same one in it when you got the car.  Mike changed it yesterday after I snarled at you to him.  The carb has two problems.
 
1.  The Mobby Factor  (TMF)
2.  The base plate won't seal to the manifold.  Of coarse that's an Edelbrock carb gasket, but it should be close enough.  It had a massive leak in it when I started.  it leaks a little now.  At least the vacuum is up to 18 from 12.
 
Back to TMF.  Hey Meat Mountain. . . . Haven't you ever heard the expression "An ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure"?  Ya know what that means?  a 5 dollar fuel filter would have saved a 700 dollar carb.  Nit  That carb is loaded.  I did the choke flap thing and poof!  she was alive.  We had to do it several times and Mike tells me it's at it again.  Lasts for about 2 minutes and sucks in a new piece of crap.  All because of the fuel filter. 
 
And I suspect you bent the carb bottom by over tightening

I've run NGK's in my Newport and my 300.  They work very well for me.   Do you know the definition of a Holley?  It's a metered fuel leak!carrman2008-07-28 16:00:43

Mobby, I used NGK's in my 87 Slant six pickup and they did ok for me. I want to change plugs in the truck but there are several schools of thought on the truck websites on what plugs to use. I have not pulled a plug on Ruby in the 6 years I have owned her so I cant tell ya what she even has for plugs but I always had good luck with champs in all my other Mopars.
 
I swear by champs as a rule so If Mr. H and the Dog are tellin ya champs den Fugeddaboutit!!!!!!

Believe it or not, I have Autolite Platmuns in Polaraco.  Runs real good.  Actually seemed to increase the power and idle better.  I can go 30,000 on those if it behaives itself.

Mobby, here's a tip for ya, to help save yourself some coin:
http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=EDL%2D9913&N=700+0&autoview=sku
That is the reman 1411 Edelbrock, and I have one on Chaz.  Runs good, has electric choke, so you need to get the Chrysler throttle rod adapter, which is under $12
http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=EDL-1481

Autolite's are good plugs, too. I've run 'em in a '77 Newport I had over 10 years ago, 360 4V.  Hey, there's gotta be something good from Ford for Mopar owners besides sharing the same bolt pattern on our wheels
