Forget about that manifold heater and give it a whiff of ether.

I park my D19 diesel in November and forget about it till March or April.

If you like buying rings and reman heads, go with the ether. The manifold heater on my HD3 (D175 diesel - same as D-19, minus 2 cylinders), will heat for easy starts down to around 10-15 below 0, I know for sure. After all the money I"ve spent rebuilding that engine, I wouldn"t dream of using ether. I figure if it"s so cold it won"t start, then it"s too cold to be working - stay in by the fire!

Just my $.02

My dad was an Allis dealer back in the 70's and 80's. I remember him talking about the D-19 being a notoriously hard stater. Be sure the batteries are good, all wire connections are clean and tight and the stater in good working order.

Hold the heater on for about a minute. Make sure you have real good batteries and that the starter is in real good shape as it has to turn fast. My 190 was getting hard to start and needed to be plugged in under 50 degrees. Put in two new 1000 CCA batteries and now it will start pretty easily at 35 degrees without plugging in. My 7050 had a weak starter but you couldn't tell until my brother bought his 7030 and his started real easy. It spun over faster. My 7050 had a new starter but it wasn't spinning fast enough. Had it rebuilt again and it starts without plugging in down to 35 degrees or so.
