That was my first Lemons Rally and that picture happened just before my first time on a real race track.

A picture I took later that same day:



Good times!

Theory of Operation:

A latching relay is operated by a push button and powered by the signal to the fuel shutoff solenoid. When the latching relay closes it powers a set of three change-over relays which cut the coolant glow plugs over from automatic operation to manual operation. When power is removed from the fuel solenoid or the arming switch is flipped off the laching relay is de-energized and will not re-energize until the push button is pushed. In this way the coolant glow plugs will only run after the engine is is started and a button is pushed and will automatically shut off when the engine is stopped. There is a second switch which is wired to simulate the button being held down in which case the coolant glow plugs will stay on as long as the fuel solenoid is receiving power - in which case the coolant glow-plugs would come on the next time engine is started without intervention.
I absolutely love this idea!! However, could you dumb it down for me a bit? I am limited in electrical connections. I noticed you had a small diagram. Could you share that? I am not in freezing temp area but this is handy for when I have to drive 10 mins to work and I can't even get my windshield to defrost properly and I think it's worth exploring haha

thanks for the info!

I'm not sure if I have a diagram for the coolant glow plugs. I wouldn't modify this kind of wiring if you don't know what you are doing as it could quickly burn your car to the ground, along with your house, and your neighbors house.

If you want to do it safely, all you need to do is connect a 30amp fuse, some 14 guage wire, and relay to power up each individual glow plug. Power the relays with a switch that is run through the firewall to the cabin. Use a trailer wiring tester in parallel with the glowplug to indicate if the glow plug is on. Don't forget to turn the glow plugs off, or use a circuit that is only on when the relay is on to power the relay.

Or follow the instruction in the thread jayb79 posted...

That mental picture was epic! I totally understand what you mean. Iíve been trying to draw it out myself in order to make it work on paper. I definitely will be careful! I will look for that post for sure. Thank you!

Hey Paul, did you do the escape from Moscow Lemons rally in your wife's Kia

My buddy was running the planes trains and automobile tribute car

He mentioned someone from down Saint Catherine's way ran the rally too but had a suspension failure at the last minute, told him I figured I knew who it was

Yes! That was me! I didn't want my Barf costume, which had taken me months to patch together, to go to waste.



Those guys were the most hard core of all the entries, they drove through a polar vortex for three days with top down on a fire damaged convertible!!!

They happened to arrive in Paris just after I did, and they still had the spare tire on from the flat that happened on the way to the start of the rally! (they're not idiots tho, they had repaired the flat, and put it in the trunk, but posted, "what the heck, we might as well see how far it will go...")

Anyway, I captured this picture in front of the Eiffel Tower:



All the photos taken by the "official photographer" for the rally are here: https://24hoursoflemons.smugmug.com/...-January-2019/

Good Times!

I should probably post an update about the NarfMOBILE... maybe when the weather warms up.

The fire damaged convertible looks like they are trying to replicate the rental car from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. The traveling trunk in back mimics Del Griffith's.
