6.2 Diesel Cold Start
Starting my '87 Chevy after 3 Years.
Hearing that old Detroit roar to life was like talking to a long-lost
friend. Now I need to find an El Camino to stuff this boat anchor into!
Thanks to 1997cr80r for the suggestion

Million Mile Cummins Cold Start!
Cold starting the old first gen. Ive been catching a lot of fire from
people saying "theres no snow on it, its fake" "its not a cold start, you
used the grid heater" "that's not miles, its KM" guys..... it was 35 for
the past two days, all the snow melted from the truck from that, its still
a cold start with the grid heater "hint, the engines cold" and
kilometers?....... lol. It says MPH right on the speedo..... no need to be
hatin' now... ;)

CAT Diesel 3116: Cold, Smokey Start-up "The Beast"

I know that cranking it that hard is bad, but it won't start in the cold if
I don't. I CANNOT USE ETHER or starting fluid in this engine because it is
equipped with an intake heater grid, though it is malfunctioning.
This 1992 GMC Topkick Tractor is not in regular service anymore, but is a
backup for another truck used for disaster response, so it must be
maintained. Part of that maintenance routine is starting it and driving it
on a 50 mile route once a month to keep everything lubricated properly and
the batteries charged and exercised..
Because the old Caterpillar 3116TA motor in it does not have Glow Plugs,
and the intake heater does not work properly, it is very hard to start in
cold weather. Today was some of the coldest we've had in a while, and the
coldest in which I've ever tried to start this truck, so I decided I'd make
a video of it.
