Glow plug installation
On my VIBE 50 when is the best time to install the glow plug? I'm at the fan shroud installation right now which once complete will somehow make it harder to reach the gloe plug area.

I install the glow plug when I take the engine out of the box.

A glow plug wrench that can reach would be ideal.

I use a socket on an extention, after I have started the plug with fuel line over the top. Makes it easy to start and impossible to cross thread.RIP ROMAN

+1 to the socket and extension.
Hadn't thought about the fuel tube starter. Excellent tip.
Also remember, you should be ready to pull the plug any time you foul up and flood the cylinder.
I love the smell of nitro in the morning.

95% of the time I can un-flood the engine by tiling the heli so the exhaust port is vertical (muffler on the bottom) and hitting it with the starter.

I only tried that once and failed. Maybe that was part of my 5%.
I'll give that a try again next time. Thanks.
