Exclamation Kyosho Astra Glow Plug Issues

I was having trouble getting my model started and I realised that there was dirt in the glow plug. I unscrewed it from the enigne and gave it a clean but I lost the ring that sits between the plug and the main engine. Where would the best place to find a spare be? Does one make work on all? Is there anything else I should know?

(Im pretty new to rc nitro cars)

Thanks in advance

When you buy a new standard plug, a ring/shim comes with it. But if you have dirt in there you should really check your carburetor and all screws on motor before starting it up again.
