I would recommend not using it for any any purpose. It is very "dry". That means that it lacks any lubricative properties, and is very hard on valves, cylinder walls, pistons, etc. What works better is a rag soaked with a little gasoline. It will not cause that horrifying rattle and preignition that ether does. More than that, it probably won't hurt your glow plugs.
Another thing about glow plugs.. When they go out, they just quit working. When they are destroyed by ether, they are DESTROYED by ether. That means metal and ceramic bits all over the insides of your cylinders and valves. Not too cool.
