I have a Diesel Ford 3000 (force),
The tractor needs ether to start every time it's started from cold. I have ordered a heater plug that will screw into the blank on the inlet manifold, copper pipe & an ignition that will allow the heater to be operated.
I am intending to take the Diesel supply from the hoses between the injectors. My question is will I just have to run a single wire to the starter key switch and job done or is their any further wiring requirement, ie, fun required etc.
Can anyone supply a wiring diagram showing the configuration?

Kindest regards

Dave

Also, once you have the thermostart installed and working, DO NOT use both it and ether at the same time!

The reason I say this is that it is fairly warm weather out these days and if it needs ether to start above 45 degrees, a thermostart might not get it to start and you might be tempted to try a shot of ether to help, but if you have flaming diesel fuel in the manifold a shot of ether could cause an explosion.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

The stock configuration used a tee in the return line between the injectors and the tank.
