If you have to use a cold starting aid such as starting fluid,I believe it should ALWAYS be applied before the air filters. The best being at the air intake. Now I am not promoting the use of the product, merely answering the question. In a perfect world we would not use it, but unfortunetly we know there are times and places nothing else will do. In some cases(pardon the pun) its not the product causing the damage , its the nut holding the can. Always apply product before filters, the engine MUST be cranking at NORMAL cranking SPEED, and use ONLY enough to start engine. If engine starts immediately you used to much. If engine is not cranking at normal speed, do not apply. If you can not have engine cranking durring application do not use product. Have an engine heater is by far the best solution to start a cold engine. But if a situation arises and there is no other choice to get an cold engine started. By appling a starting aid PROPERLY can save the day. However as stated before avoiding its use will save you from missusing it. Rod.

Rod: Always value your posts, but I never use ether to start any of my CASE engines. We do have a 6V-53 screamer that needs a snort once in a while, but never on the CASE engines. I'm a stickler on good batteries & cables. When I do a valve job on a CASE head, the valves & seats never get ground, always replaced. Grind valves & seats & you guaranteed a hard starting diesel.

I definetly agree new valves and seats always helps the cold start problems, Rod.
