Default JetCat P120 Glowplug

My plug went out, what is the best plug for my motor (or any JetCat motor)? What do you guys do to get the bunny ears on the coil? I was told to heat up the plug with a glow ignitor then let it cool and then pull it out with x-acto knife.

I use a dental pick to pull my coils out. I have had good luck with McCoy MC-9 plugs. These are also sold under the Hangar 9 name but they are still call MC-9s.

I got a hangar 9 plug for 4c engines. Hope it works.

any non idle bared plug will work, we don't rely on the platinum to catalyze like is required with glow fuel. different brands of plugs just need the voltage set accordingly. when pulling the coils don't wait for it to cool off, heat it up for a few seconds, remove the glow driver and then pull the coils out, they are far less likely to be damaged when still warm.

FWIW i use McCoy 59s, they last many hundreds of starts and the reason i use them is becasue that's what i use in everything that requires a glow plug
