i just replaced my glow plugs for the first time in a 1994 f-250 with the powerstroke 7.3. i was shocked to find the ones in the truck did not match the ones i had recieved. I called several part store to verify numbers they all told my autolite 1108 glowplugs were correct. i believed them, DON'T believe them they are not the correct ones. they are idi glowplugs the proper glowplugs are autolite 1111. Just giving everyone a heads up, so they don't have to do the job twice. As i said i'm new to diesels so maybe most of you's already dealt with the issue.

I agree stay the heck away from autolites. I've dealt with them enough in other peoples engines that you couldn't give me a set. Go with these Riffraff Diesel: Motorcraft Glowplugs

Only use motorcraft plugs unless you want to deal with more problems later...
