Default OS 110A question

Hey guys I have this engine in my TF Mustang. Has been awhile about 4 months since I started her. The engine will start and run as long as the glow igniter is connencted, but as soon as I take it off the engine dies. Could the glow plug be bad??

That would be my first guess. Either that or the low end is too rich

You could try a hotter plug, the plug is cooling from fuel splashing it so you could even try an idle bar plug. I had this problem the I moved to an os #6 and problem solved.

your fuel may be bad. Try it in another engine or try some different fuel
