Sorry to keep asking all these questions but I am trying to make sure I have this thing figured out before the temps drop.

I have seen some info that would suggest this thing has an intake manifold heater. If that is correct how do you use it? Also It has the cold start kit which from what I have read is an ether injection system. I can see what looks like a can of ether behind the grill but my guess is it's empty. So with that, should I consider using the ether and is it really necessary if the tractor is plugged in. ( I am replacing what looks like a Katz block heater with the 1000 watt Case unit). And if it is something that should be used where do you get the ether bottles?

Again sorry for all the questions but I came from a JD 2320 CUT that was plug in for 2 hours turn on wait for the glow plug light to go out then start.

Going to depend on the condition of your engine.

Plugged in my 1070 always starts down to -40 without ether.

Not plugged in it will start unassisted down to -10 c.

My 970 is getting tired, starts fine in the summer but come winter it needs to be plugged in and needs a quick spray of ether in the pre-cleaner to bring it to life on real cold days.

As far as the pre heater goes I believe you turn the key counter clockwise to energize it.

Probably because fuel leaks down on older machines after they sit for a while I find if you crank the engine over for about 5 seconds then let it rest 10-15 seconds before you resume cranking they start better.

Thanks for the info,

Mine will start OK I guess without any help from the preheater. But I have to crank it for probably 10 - 15 sec to get it to fire. Then it coughs and wheezes for another 10 or so seconds after which it runs fine. After that it will fire right up with barely turning over.

Hopefully the block heater does the trick this winter but I am going to try the preheater and see what that does.

Never ever use the manifold heater and ether at the same time! One or the other, never both.

I just started using the intake manifold heater on my 930 because it is getting a bit tired and hard to start when cool out. The instruction sticker is about gone but the 930 manual says to turn the key to the heat position for 30 seconds then start the engine. Likely the same procedure on a 70 series. I actually turn the heat on for 30 seconds, crank the engine just about a crank and a half to suck that hot air in, wait a few seconds, then hit the heat another 30 seconds and start. Seems to work. As for the ether dispenser, I'd just buy a spray can or better yet not. I spent a bunch of time once fixing up the piping and wiring on the 1175 to get the ether dispenser working only to have the solenoid stick open on me the first time I used it and dump the better part of the can before I got it stopped. Never thought about using it since. Use you block heater and you shouldn't need the ether. Your heads will appreciate it. Enjoy your Case!

It sounds like your tractor has the factory ether kit, CASE never installed both the heater and ether kit on a tractor. Most sunset tractors had the heater and white
tractors got the ether kit. Having a engine heater is always the best thing to do, but once in the while that is not practical and then properly used the two other
options work also. Rod.

Thanks for all the great info. Hopefully I can get out to the Quonset after work today and get a better look to see if it has the intake heater. Given it has an ether kit I am not hopeful. It is supposed to be nice this weekend so I am hoping to get the new block heater installed then.

Well I had a look last night and it appears that I don't have the intake preheater, just the ether injector as had been mentioned previously.
