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..

Have Fun

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.

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).
