Hello,I am looking to rent or buy a glow plug reamer from an early 617. I believe it is 18 x 1.5 mm.

Thanks,

Marc-André

FYI

Many owners are making their own tool from an old glow plug.

Thank you very much whunter!!! I am not sure if I want to buy OE, aftermarket, or build my own.

I assume if I make one I would want to make it the same length as the original GP? Would you happen to know the diameter of the reamer portion on the loop style reamer so I could match up a drill bit (The posts you sent mention 7mm but I believe it's for the "pencil type" GP's)?

I need to make a couple LOOP style reamers to replace missing tools, and will get dimensions in a few days.
