Glow Plug Rail New Generation Copper 2.8TD


Fourth Generation Mitsubishi Glow Plug Rail.

All Of The Best From The Previous Generation 

But with The NEW DESIGN With Holes NOT Slots

This One Is Designed For the 2.8 4M40 Diesel

But I Also List The Same Specification

Copper Rail To Fit All 2. 5 Turbo diesels Including L200s

The Ultimate Glow Plug Rail.

No More Fiddling With Fitting The Rail So As To Get Each Terminal Washer  In The Correct Place.

We Fit This Latest Generation Rail To All Our Mitsubishis. Mechanics MUCH Prefer Them.

This Is The History Of The Development Of The GHlow Plug Heater Rail

1st Generation Aluminium :- Soft Metal With Terminal Slots That Widen And Break .

                              Poor Conductivity Compared To Other Metals. Cheap and easy to manufacture

2nd Generation Steel With Zinc Coat :- Steel Is Strong But Rusts

So These Are Normally Coated With Zinc.

                               Looks Good When New But The Zinc Coat Wears Off So Rusting Occurs.

                               Both Steel And Zinc Are Relatively Poor Conductors Compared To Copper .

                               Attempts To Overcome This problem Was To Add An Extra Conductor Terminal

                               So An Extra Wire Conductor From The Rail To The relay Could Be Added.

3rd Generation  Copper :- Excellent Properties But Merely A Copy Of The Original With All Of Its Fault

                                                 The Terminal Slots Sound good in Theory But They Also wear And Widen

                                                  And Are Still fiddly To Fit

                                                  Trying To Get The Four Washers On The Glow Plugs Correctly Fitted

                                                  All At The Same time Is tricky

4th Generation  Copper With Holes For The Terminals THIS IS THE VERY LATEST DESIGN

                                         The Choice For Mechanics. It Just Drops Into Place!

                                         (No Fiddly Slots That Were Designed To Ease Manufacture Not Ease Fitting)

                                          Plus Extra Terminals  to Take Any Extra cables From The Relay

                                          Combining The Best From The Other Generations But With Added Features
