Glow Plug Filter Heaters

Has this been done?

Looked couldn't find anything.

Thinking about drilling and tapping my filter heads to accept a glow plug that would extend down into the filter.
Then running another GPR in series to power them when it is cold, along with the GPR bypass.

My thought process is that when it is really cold out the glow plugs would cycle with the engine glow plugs and unthaw/heat the fuel filters on the e-fuel system.

Can't figure out how to unthaw/warm the filters when it is really cold out.

Suggestions and or comments would be welcome. I think there are others out there in the same situation.

Re: Glow Plug Filter Heaters

I think the glow plugs would get WAAAY TOOO HOT to even consider immersing them in fuel.

There are filter heads that have provision for fuel heaters as an option.

If you decide to attempt this mod, do two things first.
1. Get a life insurance policy.
2. Set up video.

Re: Glow Plug Filter Heaters

600+ degrees EASY. Bad idea

Theres a vid on here a member did for checking the compression on a 7.3 and at the end of the vid he plays with a glow plug hooking jumper cables to it. I think you will see from the supernova effect on the end of that glowplug thats NOT something you want in your fuel bowl.

Re: Glow Plug Filter Heaters

waaaaaaaaaaaaa???!!?? a glow plug is used to make diesel fuel explode, probably not a good idea to have this fireball happen anywhere outside of the combustion chamber.

no the glow plug is used to heat the cylinders. after that the heat that they cycle off and diesel fuel is ignited by the compression and heat in the cylinders.


atleast thats what I was told when I first got my truck.
