Glow Plugs 7.3 PS

Thinking of replacing GP's myself, hearing bad stuff about old ones coming apart leaving lower end in head $$$$$$$$$$. Also hear there maybe a removal tool for what's left behind. Any info. on this? Thanks

That's not what you need when the electrode stay in the head and the rest of the glow plug is in your hand. I made my own tool to remove the electrode and it has worked every time so far. The tool you brought up is to grip the body of the glow plug when the tip has a blow out or a bludge on it. You need to pull on the glow plug and turn it at the same time to work it out, useing that tool. The one I made you have to dril out the core of the electrode then tap it to 10/32 then I use a slide hammer I also made it's very small. It takes me about an hour to 2 hours to get one out but it beets takeing the head off.

Your best bet is to run a strong dose of feul cleaner through it first to clean up any carbon deposits. I tried to do mine and had 2 that were hard to get pulled due to buildup. I reinstalled them (not wanting to break them ), ran a tank of cleaner at maximum doseage and then pulled them right out clean as a whistle.
