Steve, I tried what you suggested. The still can't get that red glow and it's still not starting.....
Steve maybe to give you some background. I purchased this car several months ago from a private party. This car had set up several years in storage. The lady at the storage told me when she started it sometimes it would glow red but other times you could barely see it without her cupping one of her hands by it. When I purchased my dad started it and it did light up briefly. I have never seen it turn red at all. But, it would start right up.
The alternator belt broke. My dad and I changed it and I changed the glow plugs. The car has not started by itself since. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks again Loretta
