Sounds like the wrong spark plugs, I have heard this before, pistons hitting the electrode.

Kelly Mayo

yes..check the reach of the plug if your talking about the electrodes...but what do you mean BENT??? ouside where the plug wire goes?????????????????????

Eric Ferguson

Yes the tip of of the spark plug that screws into head the electrode end . And also the ceramic in center is getting knocked out


Like I said , wrong plugs... Replace with the right ones and take one of those plugs to the part store to make sure they don't give you a similar style plug. Who knows, maybe there is some mods to the engine you are not aware of... just saying.
