The D3R head button is designed for a Nova Rossi taper angle. OS Turbo plugs have a different taper angle and will loosen up during operation, frequently. I used the Nova Rossi #6, RB (CP-02 Turbo) 01051-6, and the Merlin (Turbo 6 EHD), all of these plugs have the NR taper angle.
The RB and Merlin plugs lasted the longest, but the NR plugs worked great also.

Hi

I was going to order the 853 until i discovered it was a 5 port instead of a 3 port like the L12X3.

So i just ordered a L12X3....

What glow plugs do you recommend for it?
