Sorry for this quick question, but I am in process of giving my TD an antifreeze bath, and the glowhead is very castor coated and dark. It has been in a nitro fuel bath for two days and is still dirty. However, is it alright to put it into the antifreeze bath with the rest of the parts? Even for a short while. I know the driveplate and venturi will be monitored very closely as I do not want to have the anodizing wear away so they too will be put in for only as long as needed. Thank you.

Ok, so i did do it. I soaked it in the antifreeze bath for a short time, brought it out and brushed it to remove the castor. I blew it out with my breath only as I did not want to use compressed air to blow it out and possibly damage it. And as I did not want to rinse it with water, so I gave it a nitro bath then sat it on a towel to drain any possible remaining liquids followed by lighting it up with my glow igniter to dry it out.

I've never noticeably damaged a glow plug/head with AntiFreeze. I'd be extra careful with anodised parts as they can be effected.

Thanks Rod for that. I was pretty sure about the anodized parts, so they stayed in only long enough to get them clean, and the remainder stayed in a bit longer as they would not be affected. In the end, it turned out well. Engine was assembled and appears to be very nice. Now for this snow to all melt so I can run it.
