 Belarus 805 Cold Starting

Could anyone give me any known tips for starting a Belarus 805 in the east coast Canadian winter.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks

PS: I store the tractor in an unheated shed.

 Belarus 805 Cold Starting

Jlmacfad,

There are many things that will help with cold starting. Here in North Dakota we use several of the following starting aids.

1. Always keep your fuel tank full of diesel. (Summer or winter) Fill your tank after each use, rather than filling it just before starting it. A full fuel tank eliminates the free air space above the fuel level......and this reduces the amount of moisture that will condensate on the interior of your tank walls. Moisture in the fuel is a very common winter starting problem. It causes fuel filters to plug, fuel lines to plug with ice, and will prevent the injectors from working properly. Always keep the fuel tank full.

2. Use an anti-gel product in your fuel. Anti-gel products will keep your fuel from forming waxes on the filters....which will eventually completely plug the filter. I use a product made by Power Service, but there are many different products available that serve the same purpose. Many anti-gel products will also boost the fuel's cetane level. Higher cetane ratings mean that the fuel burns more readily.....ie...easier starting. Be careful....you don't want too much fuel additive. Follow the directions on the bottle.

3. Thinning your diesel with Kerosene is a great way to prevent gelling. #1 Diesel is a 50/50 mixture of diesel fuel and kerosene. It's good to about -30 degrees, without any need for anti-gel fuel additives. With fuel additives in the tank, you'll good results to about -40. At temps below -40 there isn't much you can do without putting heaters on your fuel tank, fuel filters, and fuel lines.

4. Install a block heater on your tractor. These are installed in the freeze plug port on the engine block. They work by heating your coolant with an electic heater coil. If you don't have electricity in your barn, you can power the block heater with a portable generator.

5. Torpedo heaters, or Knipco heaters, are a great way to preheat the tractor prior to starting. Again, they require electricity and kerosene to operate.

6. Make sure your tractor's engine preheat system is working properly. If your tractor uses glow plugs, make sure all of them are operating as they should. There are several ways to check the glow plugs, but I prefer to use an infrared temp gun. Just point and pull the trigger. You'll know if all of your glow plugs are working in less than 30 seconds. Temp guns are available for around 30 bucks at the outlet stores......but the best ones sell for over 200 dollars. A cheap one will work fine for this. Never use starting fluid in conjunction with a preheater. It's a recipe for disaster.

7. Make sure your battery is fully charged. Diesel engines generate a huge amount of compression. It takes a good battery to turn a diesel engine over.

8. Even a fully charged battery is almost worthless when the temperatures drop. At 0C, your battery will produce less than half of its rated cranking amps. At -20C your battery will produce less than 1/4 of its rated cranking amps. An electric battery blanket is a very handy thing.

All of these things can be used at the same time. Even at temps of -40F, my little diesel engine will turn over and start......so long I as employ these few hints and tricks.

Hope that helps.

Joel

 Belarus 805 Cold Starting

Joel:
Thanks much for all the info. If these tips work for North Dakota, they sure will help in Prince Edward Island, which is a slightly more temperate climate.
I am already following most of your tips except for the one relating to pre-heating (glow plugs, etc). Will follow up on it

Thanks again

John

Try to ask your belarus parts dealer if you can buy gasoline engine that is used instead normal electrical starter. no preheat, no accumulator problems...just a little of gasoline mixture Wink yeah right http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hISlTfXRzk
That engine starters are originally factory built, it is not some crazy mechanic's idea.
