Switchglo and life on redline 50
So i went thru 4 or so OS#8 glow plugs. Trying to tune my redline 50 before the motor fried. Just wondering if the voltage from the life battery is too high.

No, voltage from a LiFe through the switchglo will not burn plugs.

An engine going bad will often eat glow plugs. I'd say something was failing in the engine, especially since you were struggling with getting it to tune well.

Failing rear bearings is one of the most common progressive failures, but others do exist, like wrist pins.

Yea the guy I bought it from mentioned the bearing.I attempted to replace it but the sleeve was hard fast stuck. Just hoped to get more than that out of it. I think it's OS time.as redline is impossible to find parts for. Thanks a million for the response.I dont WANT to break it!
