    How can I tell without removing the glow pulgs what model they are. I stuck my head in as far as I could, and one of the newer looking ones has a small stamped number that says 980 or maybe its 086???

    Is it important to have the 60Gs in there if I have a manual switch for the system?

    Thanks

    I wasn't sure there was going to be any response there. I spent my money to join and it felt like I was getting a cold shoulder. I waited 3 days for somebody to respond and then came back home - and sure enough ...I got a response right away:-)
    Thanks

    I don’t know, how you can detect the model of your glow plugs. In any case, the HUMVEE plug (15G) has another connector / terminal.

    Even with a manual glow plug system is it imtortant to use the 60G, only they are able to glow a longer time without to burn through.

    The guys over at the Diesel Page are wonderful and very knowledgable, there's just not as many of them, and they're usually busy. Sometimes you have to be patient.

    And sometimes a question is asked that nobody knows the answer to!!
