Old Fuji .049 glow engine

Postby wbeck » Thu Dec 01, 2005 11:40 am


I just find a Fuji .049 glow engine of the '60 that was from my father. Can someone tell me what glow plug i need? At this moment it runs with a Rossi R1, but doesn't reach maximal RPM.

Hi, The fuji .049 is not a particularily high revving engine, somewhere around 8-9,000 rpm on a 6x4 prop. The hot R1 sounds like a reasonable choice of plug to me. More nitromethane maybe? Is the plug in good shape?
Is compression good?

good luck
