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
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
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
3208cat210: @Check55c 1066 is a handsome machine that runs like a Swiss watch and
pulls(with duals) like a D-6 Cat. The guy I worked for in HS had a 1206
turbo that had 12,000 hrs without the block and heads touched. It was
completely shot but ran great but it burned oil like a locomotive.Also had
a 1086, 856, 706,Super-M, F-20. Everything is in use except the F-20.
rowdy6231: you can also use a torch to blow hot air into the breather to crank on cold
days as long as you dont use either.. little more time consuming but it
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
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.
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
BUCKSHOTcat: thanks for adding my vid
barthoedemaker: ether cannot do any damage, so bullcrap willyford
rowdy6231: @ wagner.. your right the 30 series never did crank well in cold weather.
dont know why they didnt put a higher compression engine in em at the time
or glow plugs if they wanted to stick with A lower compr engine
wagner59270: @willyford oh and by the way this tractor is natural aspirated, it has no
cebedeuz: Good. You had the work done...
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
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
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...
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
KODAKGUYNUMBER1: @brian93ist did u not listen to anything he said in the begining of the
SuperJohndeere4020: ha you could just let that thing idle all winter so you won't have to try
Nathan98831: My fat brother likes your truck with the feeder.
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.
Milt Shaw: As a former John Deere Area Service Manager may I offer some suggestions:
There is a metering attachment that SHOULD be on the tractor to meter
starting fluid into the intake manifold. Injecting either directly into the
intake manifold as shown in the video can do damage to the pistons. Also
there is a block heater that will keep the anti-freeze warm and help in
cold weather starting.
3208cat210: That 4230 is missing, which is understandable in the way cold. However, to
immediatley jam the Quad-Range into gear and lug the old terd out of the
shed? 15-40 had to be like cold honey.
steve-o kneller: my 4430 john deere is just the same to start
Kristopher McIntyre: put a shot of diesel in the carbrator it usually work for me
hheywire: hey u gotta checkout my coldstart of my 1941 john deere b, 15F no ether or
shadypop5: the 30 series john deere has a 404 cubic in. diesel. but the 4030 had like
a 389 or something of that order.
