glow-head/plug "insulator" query..  Empty glow-head/plug "insulator" query..

How resistant is the insulator to chemicals which might be used in cleaning? I purposely omitted the glow-heads/plugs from a hot-soak in Ethylene Glycol, when cleaning some engines recently, for fear of the insulator or coil being compromised.

Is the insulator impervious to most chemicals? I would assume that it's fairly resistant to high temperatures.. being located in the engine's cylinder head.

Is the insulator some type of ceramic?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Don't know answer to your question, but anytime I'm doing a "High Risk" clean up of a good plug or head, I light a birthday candle and put a drop of wax in the element cavity. The wax will melt/burn off once you connect a battery to the newly cleaned head.

I like that suggestion a LOT. Thanks for the tip!
