I have just replaced the cylinder head gasket on this tractor. I have'nt been able to get it started. I am getting fuel as evidenced by smoke from the exhaust. Can I use a shot of ether to assist starting? I ask because I want to be as certain as I can that ether will not damage this particular engine. Thanks,

If its cold they are hard to start,I usually plug mine up but have used a smallshot of starting fluid with no problem sometimes.Also timing is critical to good starting on those engines

Ether on a Long 910 is not a good idea they don't like it. Have you used the hand primer pump to make sure the filters are full? A good hot battier will sure help to spin it over fast enough. If you do use ether on it use very little in the intake hose not in the air cleaner. My 900 was a little hard to start after I changed the fuel filters. Bandit

If you live where it's cold you probably need an engine heater. That will make your engine start easier. Hal

Pull off a plug wire to see if there's good fire to your plugs while a helper makes an attempt to start the engine. You should be holding the plug wire 1/4" away from the sparkplug. Hal
