Loosen it, heat it, crank it, tighten it and start it.
If the engine is flooded, the fastest way to get the excess fuel out of it is through the plug hole..... Need the plug out to do it

Each to there own i guess.... everyone has thier own ways!

If you loosen the plug and give the motor a few cranks, that fuel is gonna bleed out. Stick the igniter on the plug and it's gonna dry up.
No turning the car upside down and no fuel dribblin all over.
Cleaner and quicker
Yeh to each his own.

Ok Guys:

Before you make this thread go stupid think about this.

1. If you take the glow plug out.... BE sure to clean the inside of the head first with a shot of air or use some motor spray and Q tip to get to the dirt away from the opening into the plug area.

2. At the track it is not wise to take the aircleaner and tube off the carb unless you remove the engine completely to remove any dirt around the aircleaner and tube.

3. Dirt is your engines worst enemy!

4. Just loosening the glow plug and using the igniter will result in a great accumulation of dirt around the head area as soon as you put the vehicle back on the track because of wet fuel attracting dirt.

So.... Clean out the head area, take out the plug, turn the chassis upside down, drain any fuel and turn the engine over a few times. Replace the plug and away you go!

Did I mention dirt is your engines worst enemy!
