Hi
I have the circulator water heater but at the wood lot has no electricity, the oil now is 15w40 which I can change but warm weather is close, I hope. As for the type of heater I don't know and don't know how to tell, I am no mechanic for sure. What do I look for. Thanks Jerry

Yeah spring is close.  I run 0w-30 or 5w-40 in my belarus as it sits in an unheated shed all winter. It's easier on it then 15-40 especially down below -15c.

I'll have to find a pic for you as that's the easiest as the glow plug system I'm told works well. Mine has the flame starter system. But it sounds like whatever you have isn't working so don't bother with it for now as it sounds like you need to use your tractor.   I just use a squirt of ether in that plastic air inlet on top of the hood  while cranking. Use just enough to get it going don't dump a can in there and try and start it. With this all said it's best to plug it in especially below -15c with that heavy oil in it.  If you have no power where your tractor is get a portable generator and plug it in for an hr. It's way easier on everything. Once it gets to below -5c  I plug all my tractors in when I need to use them just less wear and tear on stuff.

Hi
I have new to me 572 and at minus 10 c does start good. The dash has a glow plug swith and glow light which the says should glow after 30 seconds but there is no light and I dont know if it works at all. Any ideas were to go now and how to test or replace. Thanks

Well 1st off does it have a circulating block heater you can plug in?  I'd recommend plugging it in below 0c. Even for 1 hr it will fire right up. When its real cold below -20 etc it needs to be plugged in longer like over night. Also what wieght of oil is in it? For winter use and no heated shop 30w or even 15w-40 don't work very well. Makes for hard cranking of the engine.

As for the glow plug cold start system... do you know if it has glow plugs in the head or the flame starter mounted in the intake? manifold?
