Trouble starting

Evening all,

We had the head changed on Nina's 3rd gen the other week, and since then it's taken ages to start.  Is this a need for new glow plugs, or something else?

Or glowplug fuse blown... wouldn't be the first time after head work.

How's things big man?

Re: Trouble starting

Hi mate - all well in Wales/Worcestershire/Warwickshire....the little man is walking and chatting away in little man speak.

Anyway - found the problem.  When the head was replaced, the connection to the power bar for the glow plugs was undone.  Whilst this was put back together, it was too loose, and therefore no power was getting to the plugs.  A small washer later, and hey-presto - all is well again.
