They are not all long, one of the is an OS #8 which is considered short plug.
The os is a standard long plug Short body. not threads.. They all long threads. Again the plug is NOT the problem. I suggest the Op disassemble the engine and see what really is causing the problem.
since you think the problem is the length of the plug then you use extra washers and fix the problem!

its not worth arguing with him, even when wrong, still right because been in the hobby for so long or whatever. then it resorts to getting called names etc.
you posted the proof of different lengths, hopefully the OP will see it and know better.

It's worth making a statement that all those plugs shown will work in any standard nitro engine Except for a turbo plug. There is plenty of room under the head so a plug hitting the cylinder and causing the engine to not start and jam It's impossible even with out the washer.. Something else is causing the problem. The engine is well used and should be inspected inside and out to see what is really causing the problem. it's not the glow plug.
