That would be great! Thank you. Maybe I'll leave you with a check in the amount you'd like, and if it works out, you can deposit it. Could you please e-mail a contact phone number and I'll be in touch today towards noon and we can arrange something. The snow should be done with by late afternoon I think.

Glow Plugs

I just brought home a $500 '76 (115) 240D and the glow plugs weren't working. 3 of the 4 tested good, so local mechanic gave me the montana solution (quite common up here, especially in winter). He ran direct from battery to installed pushbutton that he put under dash. I'm waiting for the 4th glowplug, but it definitely starts much better these days!!!

I thought about routing a wire straight from the battery to the plugs for a just in case rig, but haven't been able to find a good looking switch that could handle 80amp. Oh, and I haven't seen an 80amp inline fuse either. Sounds like a great safety precaution though. Regarding my problem, turns out it was my glow relay. Thanks.

Bob,
I'll give you a call about that relay of your's. I think I'll take it. Although, I have no problems with getting my own if you'd like to keep it as a spare.

NAPA sells a push-button switch which does seem to handle the amperage, however, my mechanic was out of a choice of wire and put in a thinner gauge than should have. Have to depress 15 - 20 seconds to insure start with small gauge wire.
