Curtis B. :

The SL5625 , sn above 8800, shows t have a Perkins 204-30 engine, and uses the Gehl # XXXXX glow plug. A glow plug that is open and bad, would read zero ohms. Anything 5 ohms or less is considered good, but with all reading different, they may be getting weak... Have they ever been changed?

Curtis B. :

Here is link showing the NGK tests. http://www.ngk-dpower.com/en/technik/technik-tipps/technik-tipp-1/

Curtis B. :

Are you getting full battery voltage to the glow plugs when they should be heating?

Curtis B. :

The Gehl site does not show DX series.??

Curtis B. :

Most glow plugs are made by bosch or NGK and will have part number on the base of the glow plugs.

Customer:

I don't know if they have been changed. my V.O.M. shows 9 volts to the plugs. what would cause voltage to be low?

Curtis B. :

Maybe a bad connection to the glow plug harness.?/

Curtis B. :

How old is the unit? Glow plugs should be changed every two years for maximum performance.

Customer:

my unit is a 1995 model. I assume the voltage should be 12v.

Curtis B. :

Yes,should be 12 volts.

Customer:

So. you think my plugs may be ok? Would a good test be to make a jumper wire from a good 12v source and energize for about 15 seconds and see if it will start?

Curtis B. :

Lost connection!

Curtis B. :

Switching to question and answer so it will load!

Yes, try jumper to the glow plugs, but a new set might help start.
