glow plug removal tool

just purchased one from www.jjandaracing.com

will be tesing it shortly will add feedback here if there is interest.

I would like to hear from those that removed them by force, as there is so much stuff in the way that seemed likely to be damaging using brute force. (yeah I know, use the search loser!)

they shipped from Oregon by US post so shipping was a whopping $2.91usd,
email response was quick and courtious,
phone was a little more difficult as it seems to be home based type business
recieved product promptly

Now that looks like a tool for people with old gps to get. That would have been a great help with my gp problem!!!

Re: glow plug removal tool

mentioned it in the other post but didn't elaborate. The glowplug I had that wouldn't come out was able to unscrew completely. I broke a few others in the vise and they broke off cleanly at the base of the threads. Did some rough measurements and decided that it would come out the injector hole. Ended up working like this: removed the injector, grabbed the glowplug tip with locking hemostats, broke threaded part of plug off with vise grips, pulled glow plug tip into prechamber and out injector hole. This method obviously wouldnt work if the plug threads do not unscrew completely. Also need a little room to manuver, mine was #7 which wasn't too bad. I didn't know a removal tool existed at the time I did mine, if I did, I probably would have bought one to not risk dropping the plug tip down the cylinder.

Re: glow plug removal tool

I am guessing the tip will still break off and have to be removed,
I will see what happens next weekend when lil bro is back and the surgery is attempted

Re: glow plug removal tool

Just a quick question. What in the world is a site that has 99.99% to do with 3 and 4 wheel ATV's have a glow plug removal tool for 6.2 and 6.5 diesels???? It does look like a nice tool though.

Re: glow plug removal tool

Where does the tip go if you brake half of it? I broke one of mine, put in a new one and been driving it for three weeks as usual.Not so smart I know but it`s still working.

Re: glow plug removal tool

More lazy than brave. I know it went into the engine but could it get stuck somewhere in the head? Or did I have that much luck [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] it passed the valve and went out the exhaust.
