Default What's up with Elsbett?

Anyone notice Elsbett, Germany no longer sell kits on their site.

One piece they offered for the Mercedes was rather unusual. It was an "after glow" relay which kept the glow plug "wait" light on for a full 30 seconds then kept the glow plugs on for an additional 30 seconds after the engine started.

This was a Bosch relay but they carefully scratched off the number and replaced it with their sticker. Does anyone know the part number?

This type relay would probably be useful for cold starts for single tank and two tank kits as well as biodiesel users and even straight diesel users.

I have several of those relays as well as what Bosch calls the "Fast Glow Kit" which is a new style glow plug and controller for the older cars. I will look up the numbers when I get in today.

How are you Joe?

I'm well, you?

" Gung Hi Fat Choi" Which means either "happy new year" or "get your own fat chick" in Chinese, I can't remember which.

Do you think those relays are a useful addition?
