Default Glow Plug Heaters

Well after about 7 Days my car finally arrived, but it didnt come with a glow plug heater!!!!!!

So iv got my car but dont have a heater and cant get one for at least 1 more week. SO does anyone know a way to get the glow plug hot enough to get the car going???

Put some plugs onto a little 9 or 6v battery if you can and with the other ends put the positive on the tip of the glow plug, and the negative i think was on the cylinder head?

I used to race control line planes and you started it somewhat like that but i don't quite remember how it went. You could always make your own there is probably sites that tell you how to do it.

I always do this and it works..

bring 2 AA batteries and connect them together ..

+ve side of one battery with the -ve side of the other battery and stick them together with any tape.

connect 2 wires .. 1 to the +ve side of the upper battery and another wire to the -ve side of the other battery.

Connect one of the wires to the cylinder head and the other 1 on the tip of the glow plug,, this should work.. but im not really sure where to put the +ve or the -ve so u have to try it.

testing which 1 is the right one will not harm your engine.

It makes no difference where you put the + or the -.
As long as you have a closed circuit.
