Default Where to take temp readings??

Where do you take temp readings from with an infared temp meter? Do you point it at the glow plug from the top or what?? Thanks!!

Anywhere on top of that cooling head will do fine.

Most say to take the temp right at the glow plug. Here's a FYI fact. Temp guns ( infrared ) do not measure temps accurately when aimed at reflective objects (like the shiny glow plug tip). It's best to point it just to the side of the glow plug for the most accurate reading....
