Hi guys, i need some help here, my 235 is a Mitsubishi diesel and it runs great BUT if i leave it sit for a couple days and try to start it, it cranks a long time to start (way to long) now i used a test meter and checked the glow plugs and they tested good, and i dont see any fuel leaks, so im kinda at a loss as to what makes it crank so long, ive even cycled the glow plugs 2-3 times then tried and it didnt help. only thing i havent tried is to give it a shot of either before cranking... ( i hate that stuff so i would have to go buy some if i need to try it) any clues? could it be a fuel leak down? thanks

Shan, Yes, ether and glow plugs definitely don't mix ! If you do try ether do not use glow plugs and vice versa.

Mr Martin has good advice. I would also ask if you have changed fuel filters ? Filters are doing their job when they filter out crud from bad fuel etc. But when they do their job and restrict fuel flow because of bad stuff they have filtered out, they need replaced.

Good luck, Bill

You can have a leak where air gets in, but fuel will not come out.

Does it have a priming pump?

New to this forum but as well as the above, id check you have no small leaks. If you have any leaks in the fuel lines or filter housings you could get fuel running back. Particularly important to avoid in a system with no lift pump.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
