    Default 505GTD Hard to start

    I have a diesel 505 that is hard to start, to the point that I need to use Start Ya Bastard if it's cold. I've got a pretty solid hunch that it's a glow plug issue, so I want to test them. Problem is, when I went for a look I couldn't see them or where they might be. Any hints or tips?

    Near the injectors.
    They should have a wire connected to all 4 in series.
    They have a 10mm hex to undo them from memory.

    Just the man I was hoping would see my query! I saw the wire hopping from plug to plug but when I looked closer thought they might just be be the injectors. Thanks for the info.
