Default Screwing in glow plugs

Ok, this is gonna sound real noobish!!!

But, since i`ve just rectified my problem of an over-screwed heatsink, now, is there a "proper" way to screw in my glow plugs in order not to over-screw them?

Thanks!

JUst scrwe it in with the cross wrench in an upright position, and as soon as it stop from turning in, give one more little push in..and thats fine dont overtighten it.

Allways turn wrench counterclockwise, while applying light pressure inward, untill you feel the plug threads drop into the threads on the head. Then turn clockwise using fingertips only, untill you meet with some resistance. Most damage occurs when threads get 'buggered' up from cross-threading.

He meant using the tool use your fingers only so you dont apply too much torque.
