Default Glow plug / combustion chamber questions

With the glow plug tightened down, it should;

(A) Be flush with the top of the combustion chamber.

(B) Be into the combustion chamber. (a small amount)

(C) Be above the combustion chamber. ( 1 thread or so )

I have 3 engines, and all three are different.

What is right, how do I change what is not?

The opinion I see most is flush with the top of the chamber. This sounds correct to me. I have an mc8 in my hpi evo II and it is about 1 full thread too short.

Any ideas?
