Ebay, classifieds on the hobby related websites, RC Groups etc.

These are increasingly hard to find at reasonable prices.  I usually look for a broken engine and hope that the glow head is good.

Good luck.

Drill out a bad head and tap it for 1/4-32 so standard glow plugs can be used (please double check the thread size)

Ebay still shows lots of NOS heads available from time to time.   If not, and you're not the engineering type, MECOA sell a ready-made head adaptor for a standard plug. (Currently out of stock)
There was some talk here a while back about installing a K&B Stallion .049 glow head on a Testors.  Apparently they fit but no-one has really confirmed how they run.  Stallion heads are available from MECOA as well.

I still fly and run them. The adapter head from mecoa works pretty good with the right plug installed. They are picky about the heat range of the plug. The k&b head fits. The head I bought is a high compression head so I havent tried standard one yet.
