Just has the air heater grid for cold start. Do no use starting fluid with the grid heater! Is the grid heater working? Is it getting voltage? D NOT use starting fluid on engine with grid heater.

You can use a propane torch to heat the intake air, in the old days , on worn engines, and in extreme cold, they would use a burning torch and let the flame be sucked into the intake to warm and start diesel engines. Anyway to get the cylinder temperature up to where the compression ignition will fire the diesel fuel.

And you can add a block heater to help cold start.

I Heated with propane torch the fuel pump lines and injectors I also put two 500watt spot lamps top and bottom for hours w-o luck I will need to check to air grid tomorrow .
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Use the torch in the intake. Might have to take hose off from air cleaner to get close to the manifold.

I have a Deere X 485 tractor with the twin Kawasaki fuel
Good Morning I have a John Deere X 485 tractor with the twin Kawasaki fuel injected engine Thus far it has been a very good machine Just recently I started having starting problems. Turns over a long time before it starts Usually backfires when it finally does start Once I get it running it is burning way too rich .. Somewhat like a carbureted engine with the choke stuck on . Even at high Idle I do not have as much power as I used to. When I put the snowblower into deep snow the engine wants to stall. I run ethanol free fuel in this machine. Do I have bad injectors, bad fuel regulator, electronic module problem? ANy info that you could provide would be very helpful as we are in the middle of our snow season and my John Deere dealer only has one mechanic and he is about 6 weeks behind I\on repairs! … read more
