    The threads I'm referring to would be in the engine, not on the plugs themselves.

    Can I use a carb cleaner?

    The problem is I need to change the spark plugs, all four were fouled and had oil on the threads. The fouling was caused by improper timing, however the oil on the threads may have been caused by improper tightening of the plugs when they were installed. Now I need to clean the threads before I put the new plugs...

    oil on the plugs is normally caused by worn spark plug oil seals under valvecover.

    You need to fix the cause of oil leaking into the cylinders. Not just replace the plugs.

    we use gasoline to clean the sparkplug tips with fine steel brush.

    kerosene gamit ko... get some cotton buds or cotton on a stick, dip it in some kerosene, shake the excess then wipe sa thread ng head.
