Default Glow Plugs

I have a RB 5 port and a NovaRossi Rex P5, both non-turbo style heads. The P5 is NIB and I'm curious what everyone else has used in their RB's. I have several A5 and R5's from O.S. but have already been told they will be a bit short. I have several Mcoy plugs as well? One lhs is carrying the SH plug. That's one I've never used. Anyone used these? What's your input on plug choice for my engines? Thanks everyone.

Any of the following should be worth a shot/work reasonably well:

RB Standard plugs; #6

Novarossi standard #6

McCoy #8 (good, general all-around plug, inexpensive too).

Odonnel 77 or "purple" sport

+1 Good and cheap. Two things that usually do not go together in RC.

I have an RB S3 that I run, and I only run the Fireball Glow plugs in standard.

You can get them on ebay for about $30 a sheet.. Hard to beat and run strong.

Fireball does not make Turbo plugs, or I would only run that as well!

Default ODonnel

Looking for feedback on the ODonnel purple plug for my RB S3. Found it local for half the price of the Mccoy.

The OD purple plugs are good and they're inexpinsive so you can use one for qualifiers and another for mains to help eliminate potential flame outs. I only use turbo head and plugs now but when I ran standard heads OD purple and Mccoy 8 were ideal.

In short you won't have a problem with the Purple OD plugs.

The O'donnell SS plugs work great. Used them for a sort while in a Toro Nero before switching to a turbo head
