Ether has been around since before diesels, and the two are growing appart because of scare tactics far as I am concerned. No you do not use ether and....OK 'starting fluid' and glow plugs at the same time, no you do not wash down the inside of the engine with enough to spraypaint a door, Carling Black Labels... just fine if used in moderation....
To have the perfect combination of 400 pounds compression, fine fuel oils injected perfectly, I fine incredable after an engine is a few years old, so an old timer, no glow plugs, in winter.... it's 'starting fluid' or a gasoline model...or a horse.
My old IH 656 had a bracket under the dash for TWO spray cans- and it had glow plugs and a plug in heater... I presume the farmall guys knew these needed such a rig... BTW, I spent nearly $400 on new glow plugs for my once junked Standard 23C.... to no avail. It didn't start any easier with preheat plugs...but will start everytime with a shot of ether...

Hi That 23c never started good if the sun went behind the clouds when it was new, I remember a guy back in england telling me this. His neigbors bought a diesel 35 with that motor and laughed at them for keeping the gas t20. I guess it wasn't so funny the first cold day the gas was invited round to tow the 35 as it would not start. I've also seen guys spend a fortune on these motors re building them and the fuel system they still don't start any better. The secret is to make the holes in the indirect injection chamber bigger in the head where it enters the piston, from what ive heard about it.
Regards Robert
