WD spark plugs

WD began missing and I found that the plugs from the front two cylinders had the prongs smashed down against the body of the plug and twisted off to the side. It looked like something had been hitting them. Rear cylinder plugs were o.k. Any thoughts as to what is going on? None of my "tractor buddies" can explain it.

Denny, Sounds like something got in the cylinders to damage the plugs. Sometimes a chunk of carbon can break off and close the spark plug gap, but I don't know about twisting it. Is it possible that you have the pistons in those two cylinders coming apart and the pieces are mashing the two front plugs? If it happens again after you replace those two front plugs, I'd pull the head and find out what's goin' on in there...

Thanks!! I pulled each front plug individually and turned it over a few times hoping anything in there would blow out. Put new plugs in and so far everything is o.k.
