Glow Plug Install

Are there any torque ratings to use when tightning the GP's or do you just get them real snug. Any other pointers to use for them? I'm installing Bosch ( told they were a great quality GP ? ) GP's this weekend in the father in laws 97'. Thanks, Rick

Re: Glow Plug Install

Good question, I've never thought about torque numbers, I've always just snugged them up. I'm sure it bests to use some torque specs though

Re: Glow Plug Install

There is a torque spec but I don't have it handy... perhaps about 14lb-ft IIRC... I'l post it later tonight if no one else has yet.

Tell us how the Bosch(s) work for you. I had used the Bosch (dual coil or self-regulating, I think they call them) g/ps for a long while and they worked fine. However I always noticed my idle would vary up and down as the apparently "self-regulate" and load and unload the electrical system. Never had it before the Bosch g/ps and never since replacing them with the M/Craft ZD-11 (Berus)...

God bless,

TC

Re: Glow Plug Install

Has any one else had this problem with the Bosch GP's? Should I buy something different? Thanks,

Re: Glow Plug Install

When I change GP's I use a small syringe with a WD-40 tube on it to suck all of the oil out of the GP cup. That way I dont have any oil getting into the cylinders. I usually get about 5-7cc's of oil out of every cup.

Re: Glow Plug Install

Glowplugs have a taper seat so I just go snug. If you do not get them tight you will play hell getting them out next time.
