I goobered one of the original ones getting it out and had to replace it. I now know I need at least one of these in my spares kit along with the cap and o-ring.

Fogged the cylinders through the spark plug holes.
Perhaps we have a language barrier being as far across the country as we are, but wouldn't the correct term be "boogered" as in . . . . . . . . . . I boogered up one of the original ones getting it out

Conversely, one might goober up the end of an exhaust riser with dish soap to help in sliding the hose on.

Just sayin'
