Did he set the correct gap on the plue which is .060 (In thousandths of an inch) Caution! Gap is not adjustable on certain plug brands. He could have not put the wires back the correct way, here the is firing order.

joemom makes a good point. Also have a look at this thread, owners that had that happen say not replacing wires at same time will cause it. New wires and another new set of plugs, problem solved according to those guy. http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?114927-Shorted-sparkplug-SC3800-Engine&s=168aea2f947e5b5f91afcd89ce2a003a
