I will agree that cracked heads are not the result of ether assisted starting, that statement never came from me as I know better than that. Improper cooldown or leaky radiators and overheat is the enemy of the powercell type diesel engine as well for that matter and turboed engines need cooldown for a variety of reasons.

I occasionally have to use it in my trade also, I am 68 yrs old, actively employed as a mechanic at the same dealership where I started in 1962. Since 62 and have seen most everything in my career and do not need to defend my position.
As far as being a majority or not, I like being in the company I find myself, John Saeli for just one, not to miminize anyone else, who has more knowledge of Case stuff both new and old than most will ever attain. The posters who are against ether have had to repair the damage either by customers hands or self inflicted wounds as per Johns experience, Most of the ones against its use are in the business.
I have an 830 diesel, 1961 model with a working manifold heater and 2 1000 amp deka batteries in parallel with over the road truck cabling to the starter, we live in NC Pa. where it gets cold. We use it with a rear mount blade to plow out after snows. I would not be able to find a can of ether on my farm and the tractor starts when we need it, usually without plugging it in. A 1030 is a 6 cyl version of the 830 and I would expect similar starting results.

Guys I love these spirited discussions. I have the utmost respect for Mels and John advice. It is always top notch. Mel mentions a very good point not having to defend his position based on many yrs of dedicated service for which he is 100% correct. It is for that very same reason I give equal respect to Mr Farmer who has many yrs of experience with a product that has served his needs well. I can't disagree with either, Thanks, Rod.
