Tighten 'til you get a sharp rise in torque, plus 1/4 turn.

On edit: 8 ft lbs, or 96 in lbs.

So next question. Anyone know how to do a volt test on the old glow plugs to see if the old ones are any good?

Lol, I don't know the voltage.

Unplug the harness, remove the plug, plug it back in and lay it down on steel, away from anything plastic or rubber, turn the key over. It should be glowing red in less than 3 seconds.

Redneck way to test 'em. ^^
