Default RB C6BB glow plug question

I have a RB C6BBT .21 engine.

It's hard for me to get RB brand replacement glow plugs locally. Can I use a OS P3 Ultra Hot plug or O'Donnell 99T plugs?

Cheers

Hi, The OS P3 works fine for me in my RB C6, better than RB plugs . but you must use Turbo Type head insert for these plugs, If your engine came with turbo plugs it should be fine.

Any Novarossi plug would be the best option. RB, Nova, Top, Rex, JP, etc.

Next best option, Ninja plugs.

+2 on the ODO97T plug. The Odonnell ODO99T also work well. If your running a modified C6BBT, I would run the ODO97T its a fairly hot plug.

The od 77t is the same heat range wise as the p3.

Is there anyone who has tried the OS plugs on the RB C6BBT?

I'm pretty sure someone has, but I believe the taper is incorrect, so once you screw it in tight, you will most likely have to stick with the OS type glowplugs, since the originals will most likely leak.

Hey,

Which nova plug is good for the RB C6BB? Is it the long body or short body plug (Turbo)? There are so many types of nova plugs.

It's really pretty simple. The number is the heat range of the element. 5 being hot, 8 being super cold.

Short bodies act like a colder plug, long bodies act like a hotter plug.

I would start with a short body 5 or 6. If you run into problems with idle or loading up at part throttle a switch to a long body plug might clear it out.

If you run high nitro, low head clearance and ton's of RPM then a short 8 is your only hope of finishing unless they still make a 9.
