 Shibaura SD1400a Glow Problem

Hey yall. New to forums. This is my first tractor. I am having glow plug issue. First of all the ignition switch had 3 broken rusted springs. Replaced springs and when you glow the plugs, the glow indicator which is an element, gets bright orange-red within 3-4 seconds. Is this normal? The original glow plugs were 10.5 volts and they do absolutely nothing on the glow indicator. Replaced with 12volt replacements which have the exact same thread, length,. Perfect match. Tractor starts fine with the new 12 volt plugs. Just don't want to hurt anything. Thanks

 Shibaura SD1400a Glow Problem

Dnjoxley,

Without looking at the situation very closely, I wouldn't be able to tell you if you'll harm anything or not.

The glow plug is a fairly simple device. So long as it screws into the cylinder to the same depth as the original plug, I see no way of harming the engine with the different glow plugs.

The only issue you may have is with current flow to your replacement glow plugs. I can't possibly tell you whether or not the replacement glow plugs draw more or less current than the originals.

If the amperage is considerably higher, than with the original glow plugs --- you could burn out the switch, the wiring, or any relays that control the circuit. However, if everything seems to be working fine to this point, I doubt that you'll have any problems.

And yes.......the glow plug should turn bright orange, or red, within a few seconds. Most people allow the glow plugs to heat up for about 15 seconds before attempting to start a cold diesel engine.

Joel
