Rodgers..... I think you are the one that needs to lighten up! I was seriously asking which Cat engines took glow plugs. I wasn't arguing with you saying you are wrong. I have also worked on several engines from the 70's era to today. I have worked on: 3208, 3408, 3306, 3406, 3116, 3126, 3176, c7, c10, c12, and c15 Cat engines and none of them had glow plugs. That is why I asked, what Cat engines took glow plugs!!!!
As far as glow plugs being old technology, that just makes me laugh. You, of all people, should know that old technology doesn't mean it's bad. The fact is, they have built these engines so good now that none of them need glow plugs. They aren't like the old glow plugs where you had to turn the ignition on for 1 minute and wait. In fact, my glow plugs rarely even come on in the summer months.
And that is fine that you would never own a Duramax or Powerstroke. But I hope you didn't make your decision based on the engine. Anybody with mechanical knowledge should know that choosing any of the big three is a good decision. They are so similar now that they are using the same basic design turbos and fuel systems. So before you put yourself in a corner saying Cummins is the best, do a little research first.
Have a good day and enjoy that beer. I think I'll have a whiskey straight!
