What weight oil are you using? Are you using a full size car battery or one of those small garden tractor battery's? I use a full size car battery in my garden tractor bought from Walmart.
I don't use it when its that cold. I use a snowblower for deep snow and bundle up to keep warm with layers of clothing. Hal
PS: Your battery voltage is probably dropping too much when cranking. I'm using 5W30 synthetic
oil in our Kohler standby generator.

I'm with El Toro; I use synthetic 5W30 in all my garden tractors and not only do they start easier, but the oil pressure is higher during hot weather usage. I think most small engine manufacturers recommend that now.

I use Walmart's car battery that has the cable hookup on the side like what GM vehicles use. The + post on top blistered the paint on my tractor's hood. I have a Delco starter/generator and don't get the mechanical advantage like you do using an electrical gear driven starter that engages the ring gear. Hal
