Old thread here, but what plugs are folks using on the Webra 120? I put a new OS #8 short in the engine and it runs just fine. It is one great engine with an idle as good as any gasser.

I've got the Minature Aircraft plans for the 126 inch version and it has excellent formers. If you get in a bind, I could copy just those for you and mail them which you could reduce to your scale.

Long and Short Glow Plugs in Webra 120

Getting ready to run a Webra 120 and I noticed the glow plug is a long version. Is there any down side to using a short glow plug in this engine?
