Two things top help this -add a small amount of winter additive or kerosine to the fuel, helps keep it thin when cold. There is also a cold start on them, trying to remember where but I think it's under the HP pump. Screw it in when cold, remember to unscrew once running or will be smokey and misfires.

>>>found a little belter of a twactor....... A (McCormick) International 434 (harvester - 43HP)

I really like the 434. Ran one for a few years towing tipper trailers, topping paddocks and running haymaking equipment. Mine was a high clear version with larger dia wheels (very quick on the road) and had a proper fully enclosed cab plus best of all power steering. With regular oil changes it gave great service and was no problem to start in the winter as long as the glow plugs were OK... and you waited for the tell tale to glow bright orange before trying to start. Bought it for 600 about 20yrs ago and sold to a tractor collector 6yrs ago for 2700. Had a second 434 without power steering which was less handy for turning when mowing/hay turning/baling.... but it's main problem was some sort of hydraulic overdrive which would slip out of gear at random on the road so it was sold on as a yard tractor.

Bit late, but took these this evening....,.. It hasn't missed a beat....everything (really, everything ) works just as it should

My absolute favourite bit is the cow hide turned inside out (complete with fur on inside) to cover the seat.... real leather seats
