This update was laid out by another member in a post which is now closed but I wanted to verify what a great update this is and how easy it was! Secondly it can be accomplished with out any permenant modifications. All you need is basic hand tools with mostly off the shelf parts.

1) You need to insure all your glow plugs are the new style, in my case two were new one was old.

2) you will need: Starter relay, 18-24 inch 6 guage battery cable, (2) ring connectors for 10 guage wire, 8 guage would be better.

3) Mount the starter relay to the front fan support as show.

4) Remove the orange wire from the last glow plug and mount it to the relay's trigger contact.

5) Make a new 8 to 10 guage wire with two ring connectors, attach one end to the last glow pulg and the other to the relay's output. See picture above.

6) Attach your new battery cable from the positive battery post to the relay's input.

No other wiring modifications are needed. Since the current draw through the coil will no longer make it glow you must count the seconds to leave on the glow plugs based on the chart under the hood. This was abnout $40 in parts and about 1 hour in time.
