We bought a 6060 brand new. It had the starting fluid injector right on it from the factory. It needed a whiff (just as quickly as you could poke and release the button) on anything but a warm day. Never seemed to hurt it any. We ran it along side a 185, and it had more power, and burned less fuel. We got rid of it after about 4000 hours when we split a partnership, and were concerned with the rear end holding up to the power. They had enough complaints they upped the compression on later models. They had said they were reluctant to change the engine because it was so efficient.

Mine is a latter model, 1984. It has an ether button and a manifold heater button. I have used the ether but was wondering if this was common. I have a IH 1586 that will start at 0 with no ether.

Does it have a Duetz Motor or Allis Motor in it? 84 was about the year they started intoducing the Duetz air cooled motor. The air cooled motors are a bit difficult to start in cooler weather. Check your battery and see if you can get one to fit with around 1000 CCA and it should just need a touch of ether or the block heater plugged in for about a half hour to get it started.
