The engine operates best with a platinum coil plug rated at medium to hot temperature. The following is a list of glow plugs suitable for use in this engine: Thunder Tiger 9281, Enya #3/#5, McCoy #9/#59, Novarossi C4S/C5S/C6S, OS A3/A5/#8, and Picco P6S/P7S.
PREPARING THE ENGINE To start an engine, first remove the glow plug. Check the glow plug by plugging it into the glow plug igniter. The glow plug element should light up brightly. If it lights up dimly, then the glow plug igniter is low (and it needs recharging). If it does not light up or the plug element looks distorted, then the glow plug is bad (replace with new one).
