Booster glow plug
« on: April 09, 2014, 09:35:59 am »
Hi all I am getting that parts ready for what I need to sort out my pesky booster. Can anybody tell me the actual size and spanner size of this glow plug. My mate thinks he has one he tells me the size that he has a 58 mm in length and 12 mm spanner size, well he thinks. I have tried to do this before and when I bought one it was too long. I didn't know there were different size globe plugs for this type of booster or one I just conned? Cheers all.

If you look through this post Link you will see the standard plug and gauze which is the type you should have fitted for your year.
You can for extra cost replace the standard plug with the ceramic plug with wires attached, this has an expected longer life, comes with instructions as you need to remove the old glow plug loom to refit the new plug
