The JD 4700 book say do not use starter fluid. But the 4700 has no glow plugs (right?) and so isn't the risk of premature ignition a moot point? Used sparingly as a diagnostic tool is starter fluid a real problem or just a John Deere's means of covering its derrier?

The 4700 does not have glow plugs, but it does have an intake air heater. The threat of preignition is still there. If you are having starting problems, maybe the heater is not working properly.
