Allis-Chalmers 185 Diesel

Doug I purchased an AC 185 Diesel last fall which had only 900 hours. It is very hard to start. I have to plug it in for an hour or longer in order to start. What could possibly be the cause (and the cure)?? I have had people suggest that it simply needs to be worked or that it needs two batteries that are much larger than required. I'm no mechanic so any help would be appreciated!!
Thanks, Doug

Doug Ball P.S. The tractor runs GREAT once it starts!!!
Doug

baldy sounds like the fuel isnt atomizing good enough for aquick start drain any water from fuel tank clean sediment bowel put on new filter add twice as much fuel conditioner as conditioner manufacture recomends and pull the tractor for at least one tank of fuel if performance does not improve you may have poor fuel preasure
