i learned something new this morning while starting the 1100. the temp here was 2 degrees F with light wind. i already had anti gell in the fuel so i knew that wouldn't be a problem, so what i learned was that i had to glow the engine for 1 min and continue cranking to assist the engine as it was running but would die without the starter. the new biggie for me anyway was the discovery that if you fudge back on the key while cranking you can glow while the starter is engaged. that caused the engine to take right off and then i released the key some more and continue to glow for about another 15 sec. i used to do this on the old Caterpillar but i had separate glow plug control. should take the wear from the starter.
