glowplugs looks funny

I replaced my glowplugs and 3 of the eight looked burned or worn. I dont remember where, but I thought that a leaking injector caused worn spots. I dont notice any performance issues, but I bought the truck used.

I cant figure out how to do pictures. 3 of the plugs are smaller on the end. about .020" They are slightly tapered back about 1/2" I will have my 11 year old try with the pics.

I put a picture in my gallery hall. Its funny, the ones that look the worst still work. The ones that look the best dont. Unless their burnt. Sorry about the color, you would never guess that the picture was taken on our kitchen stove.

that doesnt look bad. all of mine were close to that. but all of them looked the same and I had the originals from 99. maybe those three were the only ones working for a while. did you test the ohms after you replaced them just to check your relay and your wires?

That what I am thinking, I checked them all with the ohmeter. The worst looking ones were the only ones working. AND I cycled the heck out of them trying to start the truck. Thank you!
