I have a 3 cyl.diesel Ford 1710 that's a bear to start when it's cold.Once I do get it running,it runs great.I thought maybe the glow plugs were bad.Bought 3 new ones from Ford.Still starts real hard.I keep it in an enclosed,unheated barn.The temp.has been 10 degrees above zero to 15 below zero.I was thinking of buying an electric block heater.I think I would prefer the one that goes in a freeze plug hole,rather than the one that goes in the lower radiator hose.What do most people use?Thanks.
