I changed my plug at tank 6 because I thought it was fouled, upon closer examination I thought it looked fine so I put it back in.
Seems to work fine! So I haven't burnt a plug yet. Check out this pic taken today. I have one tank shy of a quart through it. Does it look ok? I know the pic is blurry.

If it works then it's a good indication that the glow plug is fine. Just keep a few spares on hand for emergencies.

Plug looks good. Seems to be running a bit lean. The plug should look a bit wet but not loaded up with oil. All dry and shinny means to lean, black and clogged up means to rich.
If you’re bashing, just use it till it blows. If you’re racing, change it at the beginning of each day.

glow plug

The plug looks ok, how hot is your truck running? the coil doen't look too bad but what kind of plug are you using? If you can get them get a McCoy #9. that plug will last forever. thats all i use and you can gat them direct for about $2.20 each.:cheers:

I'm using the plug that came with the truck. 3020 I think. The truck now can wheelie in reverse just as easy as foward! Temps don;t get above 230 now that it is fully broken in.
