Glow plug controller upgrade howto?

The glow plug controller on my '82 suburban is dead ... or maybe undead ... it never shuts off the plugs.

I have it disconnected, and am using a momentary switch right now.

I would like to upgrade to an '85 controller. Is there a good howto for this?

What we should do is come up with all the wiring diagrams available and post them up... I know I've got a few around somewhere...

To save space, make scans in a low resolution, like 75 DPI, and save them as JPGEGs. Most monitors display about 75 DPI, some 100, so 75 DPI is fine for scans that are to be viewed on a monitor. However, if you want to print them, a higher resolution may be adviseable.

OK ...

A goes to ground.
B goes to power while ignition switch is on.
D goes to hot while starter is cranking


Exactly where should "C" go?

I don't think an '82 has a temp sensor connected to the left glow bank ... does it?
