When you remove a breech plug, you must put it back in the exact same position. Most barrels have a mark on the underside that extends from the plug onto the barrel to aid in alignment. Putting the plug in a vise while twisting on the barrel works better for me than putting the barrel in the vise. Use a piece of leather to avoid clamping marks. Also, use a high temp lube on the threads.

If you don't have a breech plug wrench,take it to Dixons.
Yeah I bought one of those from a guy at the GM Faire. Haven't used it yet, but I guess if I ever need to, I'll have one! Still, I've removed plugs without it in the past.
