Default Glow PLugs

Just wanted to know what plugs you guys use ?

I have always used F7 on the Wrens and on my Jetcwt OS8, a plug on one of my 54's has blown, and I need to replace it, the F7 is over 10.00 so was wondering if any others will do..

The only reason I was told to use F7 is the thread was longer so it reached further into the combustion chamber saving you having to teese out the elemant too far..

When I don't have the Wren supplied plugs, I use an OS8.

It may not last as long, but it'll get me through the weekend.

Matt,

WREN now offers a ceramic plug. It is on their site in the general spares category. Not cheap but should last a long time. I think it might be a spin off of the kero burner.

I been using Fox #8 Pro Series Long #4302 since IRCHA 2010 and had good results (bought a bunch of them at the Jamboree).
