Picked this thing up stupid cheap, and the engine as well. The engine/trans is out of an early 80's 720 and looks decent for how long it has been sitting. I've got pretty much everything i need to get the swap underway, but would like to try to start the thing before i go through the trouble of fabing motor mounts, dealing with rear vs front steer, and who knows what else. The one thing i know i'm missing now is glow plug controller/relay. Any advice on first time starting/manual glow plug control for a basic test start?

Hook up some 12v power from a car battery to the glow plug bus bar and hold it for 10 seconds before cranking.
