Default best glow plug to use.

hiya guys, the glowplug in my engine has just gone so i need to order a new one obviously.

i was just wondering what the best one to use is.

if its any help, my engine is an sts d3, pipe is an rd logics sat in a g4.

i looked at the current glow plug that has just gone on me and its a novarossi number 6..thats a cold plug right? now shouldn't i use a hot plug in a 12 engine?


on the topic about engines, where the ppe from the tank to the carb goes...around the little nipple thingy, and the setting screw thingy..it seems to leak a lot of fuel around there while idling and at low speed..but ok at high speed
any ideas?

do the air temperatures etc effect which plug you use?

as i notice you are in florida and from what i know..its always roasting hot over there so would you use a colder plug?

i was told by someone today i should be using a #3 or #4 plug...would this be ok to use?

thanks
Matt

when it comes to the best, i would say novarossi plugs but i also have good experiences with mccoys not to mention they cost significantly less then novas..

Default What about.....

What about Racer's Edge or Dynamite's? I just spent 12 on two Dynamite's and well they blew on me. Racer's Edge seem to last longer than Dynamite's. Please dont take it from me...Im new HAHA so I may be wrong.
