Larry, are you simply asking how many of us would reach for the either? Let me save you the suspense. At some point, yes, I'll grab the either. If your problem happens to be an extremely cold day, much beyond what you usally start the tractor in, fine, ether saved the day. We all live happily ever after. If you generally have a problem starting in cold weather, someone mentioned a block heater. They're great, but if it's a show tractor, having the plug sticking out the side my distract from the viewing. I live here in West Tennessee. To show how cold it doesn't get, last night I posted how frustrating it was to go through all the work of bricking up a corner and getting a woodstove, only to have 74 degrees last night. I use 20w50 in everything old, but if it got cold here much, I would use lighter oil. Especially multiweight oil gets thicker in colder weather. Another thing I would do is possibly keep the battery on a trickle charge overnight. It takes more amps to turn the same engine when it is very cold. If you park the tractor in a heated shop, warm intake air also makes starting go a bit better.
