How about any material that would speak to the glow plug system in the 1980 BJ40?

Many years ago I drove a 78 diesel in Costa Rica. Even on very hot days , 38-40 C I had to use the glow plugs to start. Key backwards until the little element got red.
Although the system on the 1980 seems the same, the indicator element does not even get warm after 6-10 seconds. Yet the engine starts right up.
also... what is the "click" sound 12 seconds after the key is turned to the run position/

Thanks a lot.
