glow plug tips

glow plugs don't last a long time. we'll need replacements from time to time. but not all glow plugs are created equal. and that's okay, it just means we have to adapt to what we can find. magic and theater supply stores are great but few and far between. hobby stores, however, are a bit more prevalent.

a friend of mine has a gas powered rc car that requires a glow plug. the same type we are using, just slightly different shape. see the pictures.

just use a different nut and make a slightly smaller lead wire with a smaller bolt and you're in business with plugs you don't have to order online. i can't help you with the flash paper/cotton, though. alas. . . any thoughts on that would be welcome.

hope this helps!
