I have an old Hinomoto tractor with a two cylinder Toyo diesel

Customer Question

I have an old Hinomoto tractor with a two cylinder Toyo diesel . It won't start with the starter but will start and runs good when pulled to start. I have installed new Glow Plugs and checked fuel for contaminants. Any suggestions?

Remove the glow plugs and run a compression test. Needs to be over 300 lbs.

Low compression will show as hard start!

Pull start turns engine faster, letting it get more compression.
