Hi n7gxs,
I'm a little slow on the uptake here but just realized the glow plug chambers use a different injector retaining nut and seal The nut is a 8F8061 and the seal is a 5B3718. The nut takes a special splined socket part # 8S2243.

I believe that will explain the problem with clamping the injector nozzle using the standard chamber parts.

I took out about .200" out of the top of threads and everything now fits. Just waiting for the glow plugs to arrive.

OK the glow plugs showed up today. Now I need to decide how to connect the wires. The terminal end is a .25" smooth shaft. I can thread it and put a couple of nuts on it and then use an eye terminal on the wire.

The original Cat system used a 9F8584 sleeve and 9F8585 collet as part of the glow plug lead assembly. I have no idea if they are still available or not. Never tried threading....don't know if you can do that without cutting through the very thin jackets. I'd try to come up with some type of socket plug in system.

Well I think I've found what I can use for the connectors to the 3H2033 glow plugs. I had a set of old spark plug wires and the cap end fits on the glow plug end real nice so I'm going to try and build up a set of glow plug wires with them.

Thanks for all the help, I got the starter put on this weekend and she fired up. Now to get a 12 volt alt put on her and we will have everything finished. It is so nice to turn a key and have it start. verses having to toy with the pony. When I pulled the pony I made plate to cover where the pony set and put a 1/2 inch nipple in it, hooked that up to a block heater, sent that to the head. So if I need the old girl this winter we should be ready to roll. After shopping around I ended up with 350.00 in the starter.

Thanks once again.
