Very good. Obviously, I'm spoiled by the late model electronically controlled engines at work -- turn the key and the komputor handles everything. Millicent will get a loving kick in the pump next time I go to start her. Maybe we used to do that at work in the old days -- that was a couple million miles, and a lot of brain cells, ago!

No B-series Cummins has glow plugs. Some (most) do use a heat grid in the intake...it will still start without it, but it certainly won't pretend to like it.

Mine does the same thing. When I first got it it would start without doing this. Ever since Jason turned up my governor I have to tap the gas pedal to make it start.

I'd like to know why this is also. Please post if you find a fix.

Very good. Apparently, I don't have the heat grid. No problem.

I don't consider that it needs fixing. I'm just trying to learn the best way to start it. But if I learn something, I'll post it, you bet.
