Re: Diesel Starting - Glow Plugs
I have an older (1988) Universal that starts well in the summer with about 5 to 10 seconds of glow plug. I run the electric fuel pump first for a few seconds then the glow plug then the starter and she fires right off. I only use the glow plugs first time for the day after that it starts quickly without them. In winter with air temp in the 50's I run the glow plugs a little longer. Haven't sailed in colder weather yet.
