the only T-220 size replacement is a LM-1084 Used the same pinout and the same calculations as the 317 Cept this one has a 5A rating :)

That ckt uses an LM317 a TO-220 ... ? ! ?

Not anymore, but You might find one as a TO-3 (only 3A) on eBay or other lost supplier of brick-brack.

Lastly use a switching power supply about 25A capable.

It can not be more them1.3 times the rated current of your battery but you must use a down switcher.

What is the capacity (amp hours) of your battery ??

I was hoping that the battery capacity would clue us in ... however chippy only joined today and may not know how to get alerts on his inquiry.

Of course he could have been a lurker for a time...

Hey,... there's a Lurker... and a fast Response ;)

In all Fairness, I lurked for a few years before I Joined :)

For a Glow plug, how much current do you need? a 9 Volt System seems odd...

Any more Details??

Pics of the parts are Nice :)

pull up Google and search Voltage regulator a LM7809 will take 12V and bring it down to 9V

You may be able to use a simple resistor but it`s the most crude way to go about it.

Are they easy to do?or do i need more components?

If you can find that exact part, it doesn`t require Extra Components. You can add some Caps for voltage stability, but your application you should be ok without them :)

Diesel engine glow plugs?

Those usually have a relay. My ancient VW has a little can relay that runs the plugs for a set period of time and then shuts them off. It is possible that your relay is bad if its burning out plugs. Since it is designed as a system I would think there is a voltage regulator built into it. I always bought a set of new plugs and the relay/controler as a kit.
