DO NOT USE ETHER (starting fluids) unless specifically instructed to do so. If the engine is equipped with an Air Inlet Heater (electrically or fuel ignited manifold heater), DO NOT use ether (starting fluids) at any time. The use could result in engine damage and/or personal injury.
Startability will be improved at temperatures below 10°C (50°F) from the use of a cylinder block coolant heater or from other means that are used to heat the crankcase oil. Some engine applications use a jacket water heater to improve startability. This will help reduce white smoke and misfire during start-up in cold weather.
When using ether (starting fluid), follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully, use it sparingly and spray it only while cranking the engine. Excessive ether can cause piston and ring damage. Use ether (starting fluid) for cold weather starting purposes only.
For engines that are not equipped with an Air Inlet Heater, use ether when temperatures are below 0°C (32°F). If the engine is equipped with an injection system for starting fluid, crank the engine. Depress the ether switch for three seconds. Additional injections may be necessary in order to start the engine.Note: If the engine has not been run for several weeks, fuel may have drained. Air may have moved into the filter housing. Also, when fuel filters have been changed, some air will be left in the filter housing. Refer to the Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Fuel System - Prime" (Maintenance Section) for more information on priming the fuel system.
Do not engage the starting motor when flywheel is turning. Do not start the engine under load.If the engine fails to start within 30 seconds, release the starter switch or button and wait two minutes to allow the starting motor to cool before attempting to start the engine again.
Ensure that the quick disconnect switch is in the ON position.
Push the start button in order to crank the engine. Do not push down or hold the throttle down while the engine is cranked. The system will automatically provide the correct amount of fuel that is needed to start the engine.
If the engine fails to start within 30 seconds, release the start button, or the ignition switch. Wait for two minutes in order to allow the starting motor to cool before attempting to start the engine again.
Oil pressure should rise within 15 seconds after the engine starts. Do not increase engine speed until the oil pressure gauge indicates normal. If oil pressure is not indicated on the gauge within 15 seconds, DO NOT operate the engine. STOP the engine, investigate and correct the cause.
Allow the engine to idle for approximately three minutes. Idle the engine until the water temperature gauge has begun to rise. Check all gauges during the warm-up period. Note: The oil pressures and fuel pressures should be in the normal range on the instrument panel. Do not apply a load to the engine or increase engine rpm until the oil pressure gauge indicates at least normal pressure. Inspect the engine
