TT .61 Glow plug?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I recently purchased a used Thunder Tiger .61 GP Engine. This is a plain bearing ABC engine. It has excellent compression. It came with a "short idle bar plug", According to the carbon ring in the plug hole it had been run for quite some time with that plug. Is there a reason for using a short plug? The plug is possibly a K&B plug.

Re: TT .61 Glow plug?

I can't see any reason for it. I think it should run better with a long plug.

Short plugs are usually these are found in .15 and smaller 2 stroke engines to stop the piston from striking the glow plug. My old fox .15 required a short plug.

Some .15 engines may use a long plug.

Re: TT .61 Glow plug?

I think they come standard with a TT Redline R2 plug, which TT actually now calls "medium length". I use an OS #8 in my TT Pro 46 and it works great. I have seen other threads recommending the #8 for the TT .61 as well. Unless it's a small engine like a .15 you should be able to use a medium length.
