So, RT
You think that taking out each glow plug and spraying WD40 or MMO is safe? Also, how do you ecommend turning over the motor by hand? At 20 plus compression ratio I didnt think it was possible using just a 3/4" and extension and long bar to i would guess the center crank bolt or what are you suggesting? I am not a mechanic, mechanically inclined but havent dealt with doing my own maintenence on a Diesel engine in 5 years or so? Your detailed suggestion are appreciated and thanks in advance!
