resistor wires glowing??

I am still having occasional starting problems whenever it is cold.

Early this morning I noticed the resistor wires running from the old style glow plugs were glowing.

Is this normal or does it mean I have some sort of a problem?

Do yourself a favor, spring for the new style plugs, you will not regret it. Do a search, they are easy to swap out.
