The "guidance" is to use it. It is a GASKET, not a WASHER.

It seals the hole where the plug goes. Otherwise you will have air leaks and the motor will run crappy.

Yea. Lot's of good advice. Use the washer. It's soft and it deforms to create a seal. It also protects the seat where the plug touches the head. Without it the head gets knackered.

Out of curiosity, did someone suggest you don't use the washer? I've never heard anyone ponder leaving it off. Is there a reason not to?

Yes, definitely use the washer. Going down to the creek to beat your dirty clothes on the rocks is a pain in the a$$.

Oh, you mean the copper gasket?.Yes, use that too so as to seal the combustion chamber, protect the sealing surface area, and set the proper depth of the glow plug into the cylinder head.

there for a purpose. .

Like a sacrificial "crush" washer to keep the plug from coming loose!

I do a great decending funnel!

If you do not under stand the word " Knackered " use it in a sentence.

As thus :

You can use a RC Short plug in a motor that requires a RC Long plug - However; if you use a RC Long plug, even with a couple of copper washers, in a motor that requires a RC Short Plug -- and it blows out " POOF " destroying the threads in the head it could hit you --- and you the head are knackered.

Not a brit, but "knackered" is one word that you really don't need to know its exact dictionary meaning to get its meaning right. Just the sound of the word is enough.

I've received a number of colorfully worded PM's taking great offense to my comment that the Knackered posting was by an ex-Brit.

I apologize to any that I may have offended either by my use of the term ex-Brit or my definition of knackered as fubared . Your colorful PM's have been responded in kind and I have added you to my ignore list.
