|Tom||Hello, Does a David Brown 880 diesel tractor have a glow plug? If so, would this prevent the tractor from starting?
Thanks in advance.
|AJ||Some do some don't it depends on the climate,a glow plug is a starting aid for when the weather is cold,on a DB it is located in the intake manifold near where the hose from the air cleaner fits,if you got one it has a small bore pipe attached and a heavy wire,the fuel in the pipe is under low pressure from the lift pump and held in the plug with a ball valve,when you apply power (hold the heater button or key to the heat position) to the plug the element in the plug glows and gets weak allowing the ball to come off its seat and let the fuel through,the fuel will catch alight (go on fire) and when the engine is turned over the flame is sucked into the cylinders and the injected fuel will ignite easier.the heater plug can make the difference of starting or not starting when the engine is cold.
