Default K&B 3.5 Nitro OB

I have a boat with a K&B 3.5 OB. For some reason none of my tools for glow plugs seem to fit it. Either they don't fit the nut or they are to wide to go into the opening on the head. Does this engine require a special size tool?

Not really, your sockets or whatever you are using must have a thick wall on them. I use the Dynamite glow plug wrench myself for all of my boats and my sons truck.

I use a regular CEN glow plug wrench. That's why I'm surprised it doesn't fit.

I had the same problem until I got the Dynamite Glow Plug Wrench. It's the only one I've found to fit in there.

I have a left over tire wrench from my Traxxas T-Max that fits nice too
