Default Heat Gun and Glow Plugs

Hello, I heard that using a heat gun to warm up an Engine head; damages glow plugs. Is this true?

Good question.
I'm no expert, but when I heat my nitro engine (in the colder weather) I keep the heat gun at the base of the engine for a short period of time.
I found that this method heats the entire engine quickly.

Hope this helps.

If that is the case then the whole engine will be overheated and so tempered all the metals en probably the tank and other plastics arround the engine would have melted away.

Yes - I agree with this because you would damage more parts before the glow plug.
