    I am exploring the wonders of my first Chinese tractor. I have a 2004 JM284LE. Lots of experience with various diesel engines over the years. This one is giving me a bit of pause. I bought it from a thrid party not the original owner, and so do not have an immediate source of information about this machine. I do have a lot of documentation that came with the tractor, but some of it is not very clear and obviously for a different machine.

    I have cold starting issues, but I believe that is primarily "pilot error". Nothing in my manuals, etc. mentions glow plugs, so I am not sure how to acess that function. My ignition switch has multiple functions ..Off - On - H - St. Would it be safe to assume that the "H" position activates the glow plug?

    I was reading through this thread, and some one mentioned the evils of starting fluid. I used to part time farm in Alaska, and bought an Allis Chalmers 4WD diesel tractor, and it came from the factory with an installed canister of starting fluid. It did not have glow plugs, you just replaced the starting fluid when the canister went dry.

    Hold the key in the H position for about 20 seconds you should see the AMP meter go to discharge when when you do this, should fire up it they are all working
