    Tiashan Dragon 270

    Default Cold Start

    I have a Taishan Dragon 270 Diesel tractor. I was wandering if these tractors had glow plugs or what? The tractor does have a compression release onit. I had to replace the ignition switch with a switch from a Ford tractor. I wired it to what I beleive was correct. I just want someone else opinion who knows these tractors.

    Thanks

    Well if it does, they will most likley be located in the vicinity of where the intake manifold attaches to the head. Look for a piece threaded into the head or manifold in close proximity to each intake port. The studs on top may be tied together by a single metal bussbar with a wire attached to that buss. Not specifically familliar with your tractor, but I know from reading a few versions of the jinma's had them installed, but the wiring was never connected.

    If the switch you installed has a preheat position(the position reached just before the starter is engaged), when you turn the key to this position, you will note a large negative amp gauge deflection if you have glowplugs installed and wired.

    Didn't we at one time conclude that you had an intake heater? I thought you were in the process of seeing if it actually worked. Or have I mixed this TaiShan up with some one else?
