Question
On Board Glow

Do you guys have a recommendation for on board glow?

Is there a "better manufacturer" and a "better" place to get them?

I've seen the Sullivan, but not much else...

thoughts?

Thanks!
Jeff

I have used 2 of these with good results.
I used this as on-board glow ignitor, as my engine is cowled and the glow plug is not easily accessible. I connect to channel 5 (gear) and flip the switch to on, glow voltage is on (sounder on), flip switch to off, glow voltage is off (sounder off).
I also tried connecting it to a 3 position AUX channel and found that at position 1, the glow plug gets half power, at position 2 it gets full power. There are also 3 other modes which I have not yet played with.
