like it was said above try a new glow plug and see if it glows if not then its your ignitor, if you know someone that runs nitro rc see if you can use there ignitor to get the buggy started. But if you haver no other option then there is the worst most ghetto way of heating you glow plug. it takes two people
but if your crafty enough you might be able to do it by yourself but i dont recommend it. Take a new battery and get two wires for positive and negitive
hold one against the block,head, or bottom of plug, and the other against the
top of the glow plug the pointy part of it this should get your glow plug hot.
But man you need to get a new ignitor if thats your problem.. good luck.

LOL. Sounds like you will have to bite the bullet and invest in some tools.

if you take two wires and any kind of battery, tape one to the negative and one to the positive, take the neg. ground it on the engine head, take the positive and push the wire on the glow plug if you can, i had a nifty little connector on mine which happened to snap right on the glow plug. it will work i did alot casue i didnt want to buy an ignitor.

Take a breathe, bite the bullet and buy the correct tools.

The correct tools where not made to make life harder, they actually make things easier and more enjoyable - therefore more stress free.

Doing things dodgy your only causing yourself grief and frustration, hence adjusting and breaking things.

I got a new glow ignitor and fixed my pullstart. I got help from a buddy who fixes chainsaws and such and he some how made it work. Do you guys know whats a good shaft start system for a force .28 engine?
