Re: New GC1705 Starting Rough?
John, that is normal. Are your glows plugs operated manually by the switch, or are they on a timer? You can hold the key in heat position longer if manual. If timed, after they cycle just turn back to the off position, and then start over.
When it gets below 5* around here, I have to cycle the glow plugs numerous (3-5 x’s) on our Bobcat skidsteers, and my Mitsubishi 2 cylinder needs to be plugged in and have a minute of glow plug action to even think about starting. If it does start, it looks and sounds like Elvis on meth for the first 10 seconds.
