Adrian

If you have no success with the glow head conversion, this might help you out......

http://www.mecoa.com/acc/adaptors/index.htm

Like I said, i'm more than happy to machine it myself, but from what i've read, the combustion chamber shape/area is quite critical. In other words, I might f##k it up!!

Thanks Ian for the link i will certainly consider ordering one as there does'nt look as if there's enough metal thickness to tap a thread for the plug,this means a new head would be required with a fine thread made to screw in to the barrel, looks tricky.Thanks for your thoughts Darron i will bring it to the field where we can discuss the best way forward,there's no hurry.thanks again.

Job Done,I borrowed a tap from Ray next door.Surprisingly it required a long reach plug to be in the correct position in the combustion chamber.The motor runs ok.

Nice one Gary

With all the advanced avionics in there and the sheer size of it, I can see why it took so long to build!!

Look forward to another "Norman Wisdom" session
