I agree. Motorcraft ZD-11's are the only wise way to go.

Why try something that you don't know how they hold up, vs ones that are known to last 100k+ and not have problems getting them back out?

ya it would be a disaster if the tip of a glow plug broke off and fell in the cylinder head
the cheap ones are known to swell as well.

Thanks everyone Motorcraft it is. The last ones i had in there were Motorcraft originals marked beru ireland. thats why i was looking into other manufacturer.The #5cyl glow plug splintered off and stuck on top of the piston.That was at 136K and why i had to rebuild so there all vulnerable, i guess the thing to do is change them every 100k.
Thanks again got them on order.
