    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    I’ll look into that, hadn’t thought of that - best of both worlds. That is the kind of places I’ll be going to, only the southern version instead so Patagonia. Very remote and little to no help if you find yourself in trouble of any kind. That is why I was looking solutions that don’t involve...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    I would like to have the original system there and functional, for the same reason tcat said - just in case, I just don’t want to rely on it as my only cold weather solution. So far I’m thinking block heater with the arctic kit as an alternate main solution. With OEM ether canisters, silicone...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    I live at 5800ft, while it is not extreme I have noticed the drop in power vs when I’m at lower elevations with it. There is one place that I’d like to go that sits at 16,000ft so having this issue worked out beforehand would be ideal. Mine idles at about 8-900 because I still haven’t...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    I use that truck a lot, just doesn’t help if she won’t start first lol I’ve been thinkin of doin the 4 6V batteries already because of that reason, but since the truck came with two brand new batteries that are still less than a year old I figure that can wait till they’re toast or pretty...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    Sounds exactly like what the arctic kits do for the older engines, sounds like something to try when all else fails since the air filter cover is such a PITA to get on and off the truck. Ive just replaced my injectors and still dealing with an intermittent miss that I’m hoping is just air...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    Lol yeah, I can only hope that I’ll have friends to help out with that (along with DHL) if something goes really bad and I need more spare parts than I’ll already be taking with me. I reckon I could do that if they’re not to expensive, just not how how each country would be on customs...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    Thanks for all the quick replies guys! I know that I will be in the most remote areas of South America so relying on truck stops just isn’t an option. There is a “no man’s land” between Chile and Argentina that I know I’ll be going through where both border stations say that you’ll be on your...

    Non-ether cold weather starting solutions for the 8.3?

    What do you guys use to start your trucks in the cold? I don’t want to be dependent on finding ether for the winter where ever I happen to be on the globe. I really wish we had glow plugs on these motors, but retrofitting them in I suspect would be prohibitively expensive. Even the heater grid...
