1983 110 glow plug indicator?

Where is the glow plug indicator in the Instrument cluster and is it supposed to light up prior to start up?

In the warning light area..... On my 1991 model it is a "choke" symbol, bottom row, second from the right.

With stock 1983 wiring for a 2.5 NA, you need to hold the key between power on and start to run the glow plugs.

No. You hold it for as long as you feel necessary. It is a manual system....
