If you are planning to install new glow plugs in your 601 engine, 190D from 1984-1986, it is essential that you ream the carbon out of the holes to prevent premature failure of your new plugs. This is really important on this engine since it takes so much work to get the glow plugs out ( and you don't want to do the job again anytime soon!) If you have not done the job before, it can be very frustrating trying to figure out how to even get to the glow plugs. Our DIY manual will guide you step by step through the replacement process. These items are available separately, but we are offering this combined kit in order to save you a little money.
Included in this kit:
- 4 new Monark Pencil glow plugs
- Kent's Heavy duty Carbon reamer Tool
- Instruction manual for procedures to remove and replace the glow plugs in the 601 engine
- PDF Instructions for the reamer
PLEASE NOTE: The instruction book was written for the 5 and 6 cylinder engines. Pictures and some procedures may be slightly different but principles are the same.
Replacement will require the removal of the intake manifold. A new special gasket will be required.
Why would you need a reamer? See the video: Preventing Mercedes Benz Diesel Premature Glow Plug Failure by Kent Bergsma
