Re: TD27 Hard to start after not waiting for glow plugs
Don't think it's caused any damage but brought to light a weakness it having an 'easy life' useing the glow on every start hot or cold.
First point would be a 'drop test' for the battery under load and then a current 'draw' test on the starter motor.
Any good mechanic/auto electrician could test this for you.
Berfore you take it for a test I'd remove, clean and refit ALL the engine earthing cables to make sure this wasn't the fault as it's common to any electrical faults on these trucks over time.
