What Brand of Glow Plugs are best for 7.3 Powerstroke?
I am going to have my injectors upgraded to stage 1s. I plan to replace the glow plugs since I have the valve covers off. I have two questions really.
1. What brand of glow plugs work best in our trucks? I see there are a bunch of different brands of glow plugs out there. I am guessing Motorcraft but, I may be mistaken.
2. While I'm at it, should I change my valve cover gaskets or wiring harnesses for the injectors? My truck is a one owner (me) and has 80,000 miles.
Is there any other parts I should have on hand or replace while I have the injectors out?
