I know this has been gone over many times, has anyone
ever tried this.

Take 4 glow plugs, line them up in a BIG vise for
grounding on a large wooden workbench.

Ground the vise to neg. term of a battery with jummper

Take an 8 or 10 gauge wire and connect the positive
terminals all together in series.

Connect this Red wire for 5 seconds

What do you think, Good test or Bad test.
