best glow plugs

I am having some starting my 1986 f350 6.9 i think its the glow plugs and i wanted to know what’s the best bang for my money. i didn’t a few searches and still not sure. Someone posted something about a guy named Tim that has duel core gp also so if anyone has a wire diagram for the gp system that would be a great help

thanks john

Wellman by far. I paid just under $70 including shipping from a small operation in Terre Haute, Indiana. Web site is indusadist.com. They will ship within one day by priority mail.

1986 F250 XLT Lariat Reg. Cab 4X4 6.9, C-6 tranny, Dana 44 front, SRW 10.25 rear -- Bought this truck for $800. VERY little rust, body is straight. Complete engine rebuild with Mahle pistons and ARP head studs among other quality parts in prep for the turbo coming next.

I've had Wellmans for over five years with a manual pushbutton. I just hold the button in and after 6-7 seconds start cranking while still holding the button in and it fires no matter how cold it is.

replaced injection pump twice, water pump twice, vacuum pump once, added manual glow plug button and electric fuel pump,new injectors at 197,000

I've owned this truck since 1990 and after the Wellman install GP's have been a non-issue. The manual button helps too.
