NIP Glowhead Shelf Life

Post  ThermalSniffer on Wed Feb 07, 2018 6:16 am


In your experience, do glow heads have a shelf life? I wonder if some of the new old stock examples that get sold in various places like eBay are still as effective as the current production ones. Obviously both unused but one has been hanging around in someone's shed for umpteen years and the other has been recently manufactured.

I guess the platina glow wire in the head is a very passive metal that will not oxidize by itself before eternity...properly stored and saved from mechanical intrusion into the glow wire area, my spare COX glow heads will definitely make even my grandchildren happy users of the remnants of my surviving COX engine collection...
