Re: Glow plugs

i was not aware the 6.7 even used glow plugs.
even at 10 below ours start rite up as soon as the key is turned.
and i have never noticed a wait to start light.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

Call Ford > Give then the last 6 or 8 digits of your VIN > They will tell you the correct plug > go purchase the plug(s) > install the plugs > enjoy the new heat.

Re: Glow plugs

ZD17's have a white insulator above the hex nut and ZD18's have an orange insulator

I had an idea they used them, but I never heard of anyone needing to get them replaced until my lucky ass came along
