Even a little easier - clip a jumper wire from the positive post of the
battery to the threaded part of the glow plug, hold the body with a pair of
channel locks and then ground the channel locks to a good exposed bolt on
the engine or body. Same result and of course watch for the same things, but
you only need the pliers and jumper wire, not the battery charger.
