While it is indeed true that badly flooding an engine with modern gasoline presents more of a problem than it once did, spark plugs can be effectively cleaned by media blasting.

The once effective methods, e.g., wire wheel, cigarette lighter, time, etc., are not as effective as they once were, however.

I bought a spark plug blaster from J. C. Whitney in the mid 1980s and do not remember buying a set of spark plugs for a vintage Ford tractor since, other than to replace damaged or badly rusted plugs.

Recently, I noticed bench mounted spark plug blasters on the shelf at HF. I found that interesting as I had not seen plug blasters available for sale for decades.
