Glows for a 6.2

Anyone know of a source for glow plugs for a Chevy / DD 6.2 diesel, that have a bolt down rather than a spade terminal?

No. But I drilled a hole in the spade, crimped & soldered a ring terminal on wire then screw & nut.

Nice, but I was just looking for a cleaner more bulletproof wiring loom, I think those spades are damn fragile, I'm amazed you were able to drill them.

I got Bosch conversion plugs in my OM616 which made the loom much better, and improved the starting.

Yup not easy but doable. The problem on 6.5td is a couple are down tubes, ground slot in socket to allow wire to turn with glow plug & remoted connections. Worth it I don't think so anymore for the effort.
