Default Stripped Glow Plug Threads on Evader ST

Hello,I am relatively new to nitro R/C cars, and have just recently unpacked my Duratrax Nitro Evader ST. It has been running good, and I think I might have stripped the threads while tightening the glow plug. Do I need to buy a new engine head, or will I have to buy an entire new engine? If anyone needs more information on the car let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Ryan

A head for an evader engine will cost you close to nothing.

I am looking for evader st parts if you part out the machine. But I'm sure a head would be easy enough to find also. I have a full spare engine but I would not sell just the head off of it. Lmk if you're interested in either parting out or the engine

This thread was long dead. Do look at the last time a post was made to the thread. Often, it’s an old thread and the members who contributed to the thread are long gone.

Replace the head button if you can find one. Good luck on finding one right now.

also, DON’T HAM FIST THE GLOW PLUG! They don’t need to be that tight to seal.
