    What's the best way to get the Glow Plug wire back on

    OK just replaced my Blue Glow Plug wire as I have destroyed it overtime putting in on and off.

    I used Long Nosed pillers to put in on and off -- never managed to snap it on with out these.

    So does anyone have an neat tricks / tools etc to help stop destroying this Blue Wire again.

    Cheers

    the best tool i can suggest is a seperate glow igniter.......never have to worry about the blue wire again. but you can also use electrical tape to protect it or heat shrink........

    i just wrap a small piece of cloth around the wire before i grip with the needle nose. once on i remove cloth. when i remove the plug i wrap small pieces of cloth around the needle nose tips.

    you can also place some zip ties on the glow wire, towards the top of the black part then grip there with the pliers. this works well too

    I use fuel tubing, slice them at the side and put them on the blue wire, then I cover it with heat shrink tubing... they are now stiff enough for me to put on with my fingers, and fuel tubing will provide protection too.

    I just push it down with my finger, not too tight. Never broke one. Also I pass it under the head protector, that way the wire doesn't get cut during turnovers.

    Buy 1/4" shrink wrap tubing and cut about a 1 1/2" piece of the fuel line. Cut down the side of the fuel line and wrap it around the blue wire. Put the shrink tubing over that and heat. Add another layer if necessary
