Talking Glow Coil failure ??

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a Revo that has a OS 18Tm, it burns out plugs everytime it is ran. i have resealed the carb to engine, replaced the gasket between the motor and header and adjusted the carb rich until it won't run! The car idles fine and has good power until the plug burns out.It will go thru a tank of gas and when you shut it down and try to restart the plug coil is burnt. Any help would be great.

What type of plug are you using? I find OS #8's the best all around.

PS. running too rich is no good for a plug too.

Quick guess based on what you said there I would say that the low end is too lean. Also what type of fuel and % of nitro are you using?

How much fuel do you have through that engine?

What I would do is reset the carb back to factory settings and see what happens. If it still blows plugs as you say, then I would be looking at the maybe the bearings or a con rod. Good luck!
