Does anyone know anything about the mcdaniels glow system for a three cyl. Radial engine? I have used mine before, worked fine, but now wont glow the plugs, even new ones. Voltage says its producing 1.6v, still no glow. Need help plz.

You will have better luck putting that question in the engine forums.

This one is about converting electric planes to glow power.

Doesn't that system require one battery (nicad, 1.2 volts) per cylinder? Are the batteries new? if there old they may read a voltage with no load but fail as soon as the plugs are connected. Also check that the gound connection the the engine is solid.

The company is still around, though now owned by Sonictronics. Email or call them after the holiday for support.

Are you getting the red led to come on? That I think is independant of the glow power battery.
