Yes, I liked the cut-away of the early glow plugs and associated history. Complicated little devils. Also the "hot" fuel clarification. Smile

Yes, thanks Mark. Our glow-plug's function is quite unique... really. A marvel actually. We all take it's function for granted. It was a HUGE leap forward in simplicity; when compared with spark-ignition's components. I'm always amazed when I read about America's involvement in WWII... and the effect that it had on American manufacturing. The patents are fascinating! Beautiful drawings/illustrations. Today's CAD-drawings seem cold by comparison.
