There has been a lot of talk lately about who sells the WAP 'quick heat' glow plugs....

The ones I have installed in my truck were bought from indusa....

Here is a link to WAP's webpage indicating who sells their plugs...you will notice that SS Diesel makes the list...

AC 60G's

My WAP's from Walt lasted 6 weeks before puking. I'm not going to bother with warrantying two, because they are all dead now. I put in the 4 old ones that I had to get by for now.

Buying a set of 60G's here in Canada is a bit pricey, but I will be flying into Denver and out of Omaha within a couple weeks. Do most places carry them? What is the cheapest place to get a set? Any other Canadians want me to grab a set and mail them to them when I get home?

oh sure ... NOW he asks! :)

Where were you at the start of the winter? LOL
Well, I really should have been fixing this before last winter. I struggled with only 4 glows working for way too long. When I installed the new WAP's, I was amazed at how well it worked. I was contemplating ebaying them and getting 60G's instead. I bought the WAP's long before reading anything here.

At any rate, I know what I need now. Where should I buy them? What store is best?

I just bought a full set of 60G's from the Napa store in Boulder (northwest of Denver). I paid $10.69 US each, but I didn't really do much comparison shopping, so I wouldn't be surprised if you can do better.
I thought I remembered hearing that $8/ea was a good find, but it was out there. Anybody know where? It won't be hard for me to phone around when I am there, but anything to save time is appreciated. Let me know. What's your favorite place to buy parts?
Sea Bay

Call and order them, tell them to send it to the place where you are staying. There are a lot of them from the largest auction site. Locally, I am sure you can find it at regular auto store like Auto Zone, O'Reilly, Advanced, Napa, etc. You can go to their website and check their locations close to where you are.

Yeah, I found a set on "Sea Bay" for $50, with free shipping, and really considered taking back the set I bought at Napa. However, I finally decided that the difference was so big that there was a "too-good-to-be-true" feel about the auction set. (Then again, maybe I just got ripped at Napa :rolleyes:.)

Either way, the good news is that they're in, and my truck is starting much better -- it fired right off at 14 degrees (F) one morning last week, and that was without being plugged in. Before I changed them, it would barely start at 45 degrees unless it had been plugged in for an hour or so.
