Testing glow plugs, out of the truck?

Just like the title says, I have glowplugs that are out of the truck. Just wondering how I can test them to see if there any good.

Would I need new valve cover gaskets ?
Thanks guys

Re: Testing glow plugs, out of the truck?

you can test them out of the truck, one lead on the body of the gp and the other on the stud for the wire. vcg's are reusable unless you have a leak or burned/corrroded wiring in them or leaking
