 Cub Cadet 7265 Tractor hard cold start below 50 degrees

Bought a 1999 cub model 7265 with a new grill but no lights/covers and no screen or whatever goes under the lights, Would like to buy used, but where? Also, cannot get the cub to start when temps go below 50 degrees. I put all new glow plugs, relays, battery, etc. I'm on top of the Blueridge mountains at 3000 feet so it gets cold temps. Any suggestions would help, thanks.

Does your tractor have a block heater? If it does your in luck just plug it in for at least one hour, I usually leave my own pluged on a bit longer when it's cold.

If you don't have a block heater you can try leaving a trouble light on during the night near the oil pan, that
helps if it's in out of the wind. also check your fuel filter for waxing and use a good anti gel diesel additive during the winter, and a good one for summer too!

Good luck !

If the engine is turning over and just won't get running but almost starts or starts and then quits in a few minutes or under load, it's probably the fuel.

I'd consider draining your tank and putting in fresh diesel while it's still cold out. Chances are you have 'summer mix' - pretty much straight #2 diesel - which doesn't work too well when it's cold. Even if the fuel filter doesn't wax up (it will look white in the bowl) it still may not run right. I had a tank-full of lousy diesel last summer that took me a month to figure out was the problem.

I can't say for your area, but most likely most stations will have a 'winter mix' of some mix of #2 diesel and #1 diesel (aka kerosene) that will work better in cold weather. Alternatively you can mix, say, 1 part kerosene to 3 parts diesel to get the fuel's cold properties to be decent.

Any old fuel will burn just fine in a oil furnace.
----------------
As far as replacement grille parts, good luck! Cub Cadets aren't the most popular tractors and I doubt there are many in junk yards. A couple of hours on the internet may turn up somebody who can find them for you. That screen under the light grille is pretty flimsy - mine is now shot after 10 years - so unless you're dealing with a lot of flying loose stuff it's probably not worth the trouble. Just clean the radiator screen regularly.

Thanks for the response, the tractor came from Florida so it has no block heater. I drained the fuel tank a put in new fuel in November and shows no waxing. I'm looking for a pan heater to try, but I'll also try a light.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to try and warm the oil pan. I keep the tractor in a garage so I can try light and heaters. I've been all over the internet looking for a dead 7265 in a salvage yard but not having any luck.

If you keep the tractor in a garage and the outside temps aren't very cold (say 20 or more) and you're using a multiweight oil (eg. 10W30) or synthetic oil you shouldn't really need an oil pan heater. Mine is outside & it's frequently 10 out when I need to plow.

That said, I got a small glue-on pan heater from PartsAmerica.com back in '03, but they're out of business. It's a Kat's Heaters PN 24050, currently available from Amazon.

Thanks for the tip. Are you using a synthetic oil or 10/30? Do your glow plugs stay on for 3-4 seconds and then fire up? Its amazing how at 50 degrees mine starts in about two seconds.

I've never timed the glow plugs, but it's about 5 seconds and the time doesn't seem to be temperature-dependent. When it's 20 or below it takes maybe 10 seconds of cranking before the engine runs by itself. Above 40 or 50, it'll start within a turn or two.

Right now, I'm using 10W30 semi-synthetic, but I've used full synthetic in the past. My owner's manual (I have a 7305; manual covers 7260,7265&7300 as well) says 10W30 CD(or better) is correct for -4 to 86 F.
