I am not a honda guy but I do not think that oil on the threads is a problem the the Factory Service Manual for my old 93 Buick and on my 03 Grandprix 3800 (cast iron block) it clearly states to apply clean oil or anti-seize to the threads before installing.

how does the electrode area look? I will echo the call for a compression test, or have them do a leak down test to get more information on the condition of your engine.

How much oil you using?
