How can I hook glow plugs up direct?
The glow plug controller is broken

Bad idea.......you can't control those glow plugs better than the controller. Spend the money...replace the controller. Why would you want to gerry-rig it and possibly cause a fire??

I agree with answer #1 also if you hook them up to a push button switch , you or somebody will hold them on too long and burn them out, Glow plug average $20 a piece times 8 ,,, the controller is the cheapest and best way to go !!!!!!

Buy 12V glow plugs and hook the feed wire to a push button. Then you power them manually when cold starting for 30 seconds. Good luck.
