It's a .PDF document (Portable Document Format)

So download goes as follows : Open the link ... [FILE]-tab ... and hit "Save as" , choose destination on your PC , hit "Save-button".

  Thanks Dan,
     Thats what I needed, It covers the subject very well, butI
still did not get a good answer to the use of  short and long
plugs other than reaching deeper into the cylinder for heat
reasons.  That is excelent info on a glowplug and how it
relates to tuning for max power.  THANKS AGAIN

Engines are made either for short or long plugs...not really both. By far most engines use long. You can tell by taking the head off and looking at the inside of the combustion chamber, the end of the glow plug should be flush with the bowl surface...not either sticking out or recessed.
