    Bench Running a Small Glow Plug Engine

    Thought I would take you through bench running a small glow plug engine. This is quite easy to do, you just need to follow some simple steps and you will be ready to go. Bench running is a good way to get used to starting and tuning these small engines. Even model car engines can be run on the bench with a propeller. This way you can learn in a controlled environment.

    The video takes you through the stages of mounting it, fuel tank, plumbing, propeller and throttle.



    My plan is to build this into something, just not sure what yet....

    I've enjoyed this so much that I made a 2 chamber exhaust silencer



    I probably should have gone back to the equations on exhaust silencer design.....

    As a child I spent many hours running a Cox .049 on a piece of wood...
