I have a 1650 diesel and while my neigbour was working on the rear end he commented that the battery on old "Brutticus" (my dad likes to watch old "Transformers" cartoons & got the name from there) ran dry every couple of days, which is no news to me. He did some investigating and said the glow plug was drawing power contstanly and suggested either it or the solenoid for it are at fault.

Another friend of mine restores tractors and graciously offered me the both a replacement glow & solenoid-if he could find them in his collection of parts. He suggessted I come with some aftermarket #'s for them as well as the old Cockshutt/Oliver #'s and if he can find them in his "bits boxes" I can have them. So if you out there have such numbers, I would appreciate knowing 'em.

The magnetic switch is pretty much the same as ones used on Ford Cars and Trucks of the '60s and '70s to run the starter. Nothing special at all.
But I would say it might just be that the button on the dash is shorted also. That would energize the solenoid and drain the battery.
However, if the heater in the manifold was working, it would not last as long as a few days. Probably not even an hour. So maybe the solenoid is energizing, but trying to power a burned out element.
More checking is in order. Does the manifold get hot? If the heater is energized, the manifold will be noticeably warm!

I don't know about the dash switch, but its a pretty simple thing to check. However, when the button is depressed you can hear and audible click.

I have notcied the manifold does get warm when the tractor isn't running so I'm inclined to suspect the solenoid (or the glow plug) is at fault. However, once you get old Brutticus started, the ammeter always reads the battery is somewhat discharged(likely 'cause draws a pile of amps) and after running, the guage reads normal. So I don't think the pre-heater system is drawing any juice out of the charging system (with the engine running and warm , I don't see the pre-heater system in operation)while the engine is running.

When I get the chance, I'll check the aforementioned components in detail.
