    yes. it is a bitch to remove the ceramic from the plug. when the epoxy gets hot it will soften . you want to use slow cure not 5 min epoxy(brittle)
    just remember it will become a flying projectile if it fails

    I made one for an 8mm plug for a single cylinder bike.

    wear face shield when using
