Default ENGINE PROBLEM QUESTION?

When i start my team infinity .27 engine it will run while the glow igniter is on but as soon as i take it off it cuts out?

what could cause this? i tried a new glow plug and it did the same thing

cheers

If you realy did try a new plug then there are some possible issues:

- to low compression (P/S set end of life)
- to cold plug, try a hotter version
- to rich setting, try to lean it.
