Back in the day I was collecting John Deere tractors I bought a Case CC: It was the best starting tractor I had, I could bring it up to compresson and a quarter turn of the crank it wood always start. The clutch was the smoothest operating one that I ever drove. Rugged old tractor.

Harvey,

I hate to admit it but the neighbor had a D14 Allis that started instantly. I was always amazed at how quickly it was up and running.Don

Years ago, I made the mistake of leaving our DC in the corral with 50 or more holstines. Came back after a short lunch, pushed down on the starter and Pop---Pop----Pop------Pop. Those milkers had chewed up three of the four plug wires off the mag, I mean insulation was GONE,but the engine still started and barely ran on 1 cylinder.

My DC and Sc will start quarter turn if they ran the day before ..my 730 gasser is a easy starter too ,,. best diesel i ever saw to startin cold weather is the Liberty 430 .. the battery was too weak to crank twice this winter when the temp dipped to the single digits or i had charged the glow plug too long ,, the 930 starts diesel starts better than the 1070 ,,all start with glow plug assist ,, no ether for them...

In the mid 80's we had -35F one morning, the only thing that would start was Dad's worn out 50 dc. I bounced on the crank to get it to turn, after 6 clicks of the mag it started with the crank!
