Cold weather starting

Big Dean Just a reminder with the cold weather those old diesels get a little hatd to start. The Perkins engine do not handle starting fluid well. It only takes a little to much one time to bust the ring lands off the piston. A block heater plugged in 3 or 4 hours before you need the tractors is a much better way to start then in cold weather.
John Another reason I love my TO-35 Continental gas burner. Starts at any temperature. Don't even have to choke her in the cold weather.
Gord I could't agree with you more. I had a 1085 that was difficult to start and I always use Q start. It cost me an engine job in the spring !!1
Doug Bradish 1976 MF265 - used to start like a top in cold weather. would plug it in overnight and it would start first crank. Not sure what has changed, but now it cranks and cranks before starting. Any suggestions.
