Default Glow Plugs

Now that it is almost winter and the temps are much cooler outside. Do I need to go to a hotter glow plug. I run a RB C6L2G with a Rb#6 plug.

I would only charge if you're noticing probs with idle where there were none in warmer weather or a noticeable drop in rpm when you remove the plug heater.

6 is a good plug for that motor in most conditions. A 5 can really help idle and give a more crisp throttle response if the weather gets really chilly.

Questions??

Thanks, I just bought a bunch of Novo C5 plugs. I'll give them a try this weekend and let you know what happens.

Default Glow Plugs

The last time I ran the car it was around 80 degrees outside with the #6 plug. The temperature has now dropped into the mid 40's so I'll put the hotter plug #5 in and see how it works. It usually doesn't drop under 40 degrees here in CA so hopefully this setup will work fine.

Thanks for the responces.
