Hobby Farmer Adam: Let the engine warm up before you do anything or you will have serious problems
don edward: so were the 40 series, our old 4640 always needed a little starting fluid even in mild cold temps, but still was a great tractor.
Jason Shipley: Of course it will start! It's a John Deere!
Alex Buta: Put more ether in there and you will freak the engine;)
granskare: we used to have two cylinder JDs and 2 of them were started using a big wheel on the side...ah, the good old days :)
daniel tesar: The 30 series have very low compression.
Jasper M: Well if ya call her a stupid pig she's gana give ya some trouble give her some love don't beat her with ether for not starting more of a chance with some sweet talk ya know!
lkjlk: And your tractor is not crap nor is it a pig therefore its damn sure not a crapty pig. its not quite a legend (4020) but its not a damn kubota either. So lay off the ether and the name calling and just be glad you have a block heater.
lkjlk: atleast you got a damn block heater. the only thing that keeps my 4020 starting in the mornings is the battery charger i used the night before. as long as she is smoking she is trying and each crank is just a little closer but you cant beat the sound of the ole goat firing up in the mornings
John Miles: the 30 series was cold collard
Joey Wood: seriously hmm i had know idea dieselengines are carbed thanks for telling me fuel injection not carbed you put diesel in a carb it will make a classic vehicle not start
cebedeuz: Good. You had the work done...
Keith Williams: i heard that can of ether hit the ground haha
tractorssledstoys: its a diesel no carb
kjablo4: how many John Deere tractors have you
Kristopher McIntyre: put a shot of diesel in the carbrator it usually work for me
shortthrow50: next time have that peice of ass shoot the either into the breather while you are turning it over. It will start instantly
michael nagy: you should tryit -7 degrees talk about a peice of crap to start
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
