Re: Constant Duty Glow Plugs
I'm a believer.
I originally had Champs and then bosch burn out/swell on me, and after pulling the heads twice, decided to go with the CD's. Been over 3 years, in winter down to -20 on the ski hill, and she always starts first piston to the top with 5 to 8 seconds on my manual button. Never had one burn out.
I've seen their test bench in action. While I was there, Paul flipped the mounted glow plug on(connected to 12v) and it glowed red in about 3 secs, and it remained on and glowing for over 2 hours while I was there, and with no obvious effect at all. He says it's been the same one in their display case for years.
You can't do that with any of the other brands, and many of them will swell or bend when they crap out making them all but impossible to remove.
I consider the extra cost just a bit of insurance...
