Default Looking for glow plugs

Engine: Onan marine generator
Model: 15.0MDHUJF-3CR/9374AA

Looking for Champion 152 CH41 glow plugs, 32 or 24volt. They are 7/16 nf thread. I know these are discontinued, so I'm hoping some members have inventory!
Any advise on an equivalent would be great too.
Thanks, Brian

Photo Re: Looking for glow plugs

Here are some pix of my mobile project. I made the intake adapter and wired it up. Ran it on my house, 59 amps. Now for a permanent fuel tank.

Neat set up! You might try NAPA Auto Parts for the injecters. They might be discontinued by Onan, but NAPA may be able to get them from another source.

Thanks Andrew, I thought so too. I checked with NAPA, local generator shops and a few tractor stores with no luck. They are telling me the 24v and 32v plugs that have 7/16 nf thread are discontinued and don't cross reference. I double checked the original plug's thread on a thread gauge and its definitely 7/16 nf. I'm hoping someone bought in bulk and have some new old stock laying around.

look on E-bay for mikes garage sale Osceola IND.. He seems to have a lot of older NOS onan parts, and did have glow plugs on his store site. prices I saw were reasonable.

If you want to get creative, use 12 volt glow plugs with their own dedicated circuit off of one of the 12 volt batteries.
