Engine Pencil Zincs Not All Equal

I had trouble with my Cummins 6BTA engine zincs. They would break off inside and I had to open engine components to remove them.

I replaced some old ones with new and didn't know there was a better design. When I recently rrplaced them again I was very happy to see that the new ones have a central strong wire going up the center. That made it possible for me to avoid a bunch of work digging around for pieces.

I thought I'd share. Does the picture show?
