Bought a 6.9

Hey guys, i bought another truck tonight, its an 86 f350 dually rack body with 124k on the clock. Its 2wd, 4 speed and a 6.9 idi. Im gonna get some pictures up when i can.

A few questions, The glow plugs keep cycling on and off , whats up with that.

Second, the radiator will not get hot at all and the heater core hoses are, could the radiator be clogged or thermostat broken?

I just bought it tonight and it got dark so im sure ill have more stuff to ask soon

Ok. Have you touched the radiator to see if it was hot or are you trusting the thermostat. My thermostat was broken and I had to change the temp sending unit. Mine had 2 of them kept trying to find the bigger one but the autopart people kept giving us little ones. Finally got a big one and it didnt fix it. then we looked and saw a small on that looked like what they gave us and that was the problem. So the thermostat runs off of the small one just incase you have to change it.
