LOW COMPRESSION WILL MAKE FOR HARD STARTS BUT IF IT STARTS AT 75F IT SHOULD START AT 65F.
CHECK THE FOLLOWING,VALVE ADJUST(OLD TIRED DIESELS LIKE AN EXTRA .002 IN. ON VALVE CLEARANCE IN COLD WEATHER)
WHILE THE VALVE COVER IS OFF SET THE CRANK TO TDC #1 AND SEE IF CAM TIMING IS CLOSE(IF CAM TIMING IS OFF SO IS PUMP TIMING) MAYBE TIME FOR NEW CHAIN.
BLOCK HEATER SHOULD BE O.E. TYPE OR SIMILAR(SCREWS INTO BLOCK, NOT IN HOSE.
ONE LAST THOUGHT! OTD'S CRANK FASTER WITH CLEAN FRESH WINTER GRADE MOTOR OIL.
