W-filament .049 glow heads

Post  roddie on Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:37 pm

Here's  what I have for W-filament .049 glow-heads. I actually didn't know I had this many.. I understand that they're nothing special.. just a cost-cutting experiment during the Cox years of manufacturing. Mine all light though... (like most of my others... I guess I'm lucky..)



Like all the other little gem parts of our engines... they just keep on delivering fun and performance for decades!

Thems look pretty cool. Now if they are run on an inverted engine, would they be an 'M' glowhead? Huh... lol!

My 1973 Command Jeep came with a W-filament head. You can identify a W-filament head by a groove/ring around the top of the glow head.




I have one that has burnt out but but because of the filament design, it reconnected and continues to light.

Some other manufacturers also made "W" filament plugs. I think some early Sky Furys (K&B) had them. I think my K&B Sky Fury .15 twin (long gone) had very short regular filament plugs though.
