I got some from ebay recently, pattern ones but seemed well made,
don't remember the price but my bid was below the paddocks pattern
price.

Re: glow plugs

I would suggest getting good name brand plugs. I am told that the tips of
the cheapies tend to break off and then rattle around in your combustion
chamber. Not worth a few pounds saving IMHO.

Cheers
Stephen
