You can buy any one. I like the twist on ones alittle better than the push on ones.

dubro makes a nice one that not only lights up your plug it can test it also without having to remove it 19.99 plus shipping

Hey exactly what do I look for when I'm looking for an actual glo plug? I was looking on-line and there are a bunch of different types. Do I want short or long, hot or cold, a certain number glow plug? I'm really not sure. I have the .18 engine on my tornado.

I like the AA battery ones , they're small fit into your pocket.
