For replacements use ACDELCO 60G

So what did you replace? The round glow plug controller in the head or the glow plug relay/solenoid on the fender?



Too bad if you got a new round style controller cause they are sketchy even new...


We will recommended you to do a full manual conversion with self limiting 60G's if your so inclined. This is nothing but 2 lengths of wire from the GP relay on the fender & a push button switch in the cab, yup, that easy.
