Cold Start 4230 John Deere Diesel Tractor

What do you think about this video?

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.

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.

John Miles: the 30 series was cold collard

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

Jasper productions: 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!

wildbill0088: all too familiar for me except mine has no cab

brian93ist: @wagner59270 plug it up at night or put in a heated barn

dalekrueger: maybe john deere should of kept the pony motor, like caterpillar did

wagner59270: sure does

George Case: @willyford are u huffing either, u might need more and more each time, but its ok to put in diesels

nchayfarmer: yea man they will get used to it we have that 4560 in my vid and its the same way but we just take the filters out and spray a little in it because like you said it will get used to it lol and the guy down on this page said somthin about engine skip to long thats where the ether hit anybody that has worked around equipment knows that tractors these days are almost imune to tempertures above 0 degrees anything below needs a block heater

patwayzip: I used to have a 4230 that was cold natured as well. Try leaving ur throttle all the way back, on a cold start, especially if you use starting fluid. You dont want to throw a rod. Also when cranking, turn your steering wheel back and forth, it will take pressure off the hydrallic pump and help it start.

stelthblend: do you think a 4630 is better

SuperJohndeere4020: That's what i would i do, if i had a diesel that hard to start.

JRCollinsfan: @REDPOWERFARMS Our 1066 hates the cold.

woodman1241: why do you use containers like that? anyway, don't matter. 2755's are fuel hogs and coldblooded too

KOONZASS: I assume it relieves power steering fluid pressure. You can try spinning around and kicking yourself in the ass 3 times, asshole.

excessiveego: the 4240 is just as much of a pig to start in the cold :P

Kenneth Varnes: saved on the electric bill

BUCKSHOTcat: thanks for adding my vid

barthoedemaker: ether cannot do any damage, so bullcrap willyford

wagner59270: @willyford oh and by the way this tractor is natural aspirated, it has no turbo

cebedeuz: Good. You had the work done...

wagner59270: just trying to use up all the fuel weve got in the jugs before we start taking out of the big tanks... we try to save whats in the big tanks for haying season when we use the most fuel

11TurboDiesel: man u kno got a tractor when u have to climb the tire to put gas in it thats wht ihave to do my ford

SuperJohndeere4020: Our tractor we had a hard time trying to get it started. It finally starts and runs for two minutes and then runs out of diesel. After that it was even harder to start it.

nchayfarmer: lol I relize your a farmer and look to been doing it along time but you put enough ether in that tractor to seize a d-11 bulldozer just saying lol check out my video of me cold starting a brand new 6330 tractor with its winter warm up

morgan painter: Was there diesel in a red can? I LOVE diesel power. No glow plugs on that baby? That would be a hard start! Suggestion; have someone shoot the ether while you are cranking the engine, it will pull it in as a fine mist and should start on first try before battery is getting low. My Jeep Liberty is diesel with glow plugs and it has started after sitting outside all night in 0 degree weather. Synthetic oil is required by manufacturer and may help your big, bad Johnny. Diesel, nothing like it.

SuperJohndeere4020: @wagner59270 that's nice wish ours had a cab and a heater.

atcklx: looks like it might be kinda hard to do both turning the key and spray ether at the same time

bigredchevytruck: I get the feeling that Kayla hates being on camera or is camera shy because almost every time she's in one of the videos, she has a look on her face like ugh, Wayne, get the camera out of my face! LOL

89rs89: she realy didnt wana go

Jamason's World: John Deere is never crap. It might be a bitch but its never crap. So don't sit there and call Deere crap

Faxes Wacker: check if the engine glow plugs are working (do not test for over 30sec or they will burn) install an gas preheater that will the glow plugs it will be easy

dalekrueger: just got both boom cylinders fixed today, i noticed tonight one of the bucket cylinders is drooling now, hope i can just tighten the packing nut, yeah right,

wagner59270: 4020's are really good tractors

Jobe Smith: Do you know what the fuel pressure to the injectors is supposed to be on a John Deere 4230, or the cylinder compression? Something you might want to check. Not trying to be a smart-ass, but i had wondered if there was a problem with the compression, or fuel pressure, would that make a diesel engine hard to start?

wagner59270: ha ha very nice Ive never actually heard of doing that quite ingenious... cheers

Bensterrz: I realy have to say I love your videos a lot...

TDIMAXDIESEL: Verry nice cold start !

brian93ist: this is hard on the motor and battery

Goldengoat23: Before I overhauled mine, Would not cold start at 65 degrees.

wagner59270: it actually helps the block heater hold in quite a bit of heat... helps quite a bit more than a person would expect... also helps it warm up a little faster

KODAKGUYNUMBER1: @brian93ist did u not listen to anything he said in the begining of the vid?!?!

SuperJohndeere4020: ha you could just let that thing idle all winter so you won't have to try start it.

wagner59270: yeah the viking will be up very soon for a cold start, but no luck on the snow now at least not for another 8 months or so

markb2007: I've always been told ether is a very bad idea for a diesel.
