Lehman 4D61, slow starting solved

I have had my trawler for 15 years now. It was always hard starting.
I had tried everything.
A friend said remove the Injectors and connect the fuel lines to see if the injectors are working correctly.
I was amazed to find
Only one (1) of the four (4) glow plugs were working.
Replaced the glow plugs and it's like a new engine. Starts in 3 seconds now.
Only wish I had done this 15 years ago

The Peugeot XD90 is used for the Lehman conversion for cooling. It must have good glow plugs.
While the plugs seem to be expensive i bought them for $7 each including duties taxes and delivery to the Philippines.

Hoping this helps all with Lehman / Peugeot diesel engins.
