Question

Looking for 4S Hot Glow Plug


Looking for a 4 stroke "hot" plug but cannot find one?
Also my 4 stroke magnums seem to run better, idle better with hot plugs. Do 4 strokes like hot plugs better than medium or is it "cool" plugs?

My issue is idle in an inverted 4 stroke and I read at the bottom hotter is better in this case?

Found this.. seems most helpful

The OS F is a very popular plug for 4 stroke.

I think you could use a automatic glow igniter. When you bring your throttle down to idle it automatically puts power on your glow plug. It will improve idle and make starting a breeze.

Merlin make a four stroke plug that is a little "hotter" than the O.S. F.

Could be worth a try.

O.S. "F" plugs seemed to smooth out my Saito 90TS compared to the stock supplied plugs.

Call and ask him about the free shipping for minimum orders, I think he still does it.
Saved me a lot of cash.
