Have any of you changed out the pre heaters/glow plugs on your engines ?

800 hours on mine and I have not.

I did mine on the sale. I was told that if they fail & fall in the internal motor damage is vast.

I think you need something like a 24mm socket. Of course it's the only part on the engine that needs it.

i think it is possible for pieces of heaters to get sucked into engine
