hey guys i got a g6 diesel and it seems to take alot of ether to start it you have to keep sprayin it in there for like a min she is pretty cold blooded... do most diesel molines do this? or is there anything i can do to get it to start a lil more easy? it was rebuilt a while back and i had to put head gaskets in it there is no piston slop soo she isnt to tired and it has plenty of power once warmed up

Moline diesels are by nature pretty cold blooded. I would check the injection timing first. Our G705 was that way, and when I changed the pump, I found it was advanced about 11 degrees. Same thing, good power but really hard starting. With the pump change, I reset it to pretty close to factory, now I don't need ether at all.

If its cold out and it has a block heater, plug it in a couple hours and that should help it some.

How cold? If ambient is 40 degree F or higher it should start without too much fuss if the timing is correct and the engine is is good shape. If timing is OK, then I would suspect compression is low. I don't reuse MM aluminum pistons in a diesel rebuild if they have any significant hours. They don't use a compression ring cast iron insert and typically the piston ring lands are worn. This can lead to premature compression ring breakage and starting problems.

If its got any compression left, a tiny sniff of nose candy should start it at any temp above 40F. The tattle tale is looking at the volume of smoke coming out of the breathers when its running. There should be only be a wisp, not a steady blow. Most G6's i have been around lately are so worn out they dont have a hope of starting unassisted.
