What you are calling a glowplug on the 885 is a thermostart. It has an electrical element that heats up and opens an internal valve that allows fuel to enter the manifold that ignites on contact with the hot element.

Thermostart kits are available that utilise the plug hole in the manifold. The fuel supply is taken from the return line to the tank. There is no need for a small feeder tank. A new starter key switch is required that incorporates a heating position.

Are you aware that there is a cold start device on the injection pump.

Presuming your 880 is a three cylinder, on the left hand side of the injector pump there is a small spindle with a roll pin in it to form a T shape. Turn this screw clockwise into the pump until it is just nipped ( not tight ) before attempting to start the engine. Start the engine and then unscrew the T piece.

I suggest you obtain a user guide manual from the DBTC shop.

The original fitment for the 880 had a ether plug as a cold start aid in the inlet manifold, please see ref (2) in the following link. http://partstore.caseih.com/us/parts-se ... 05ar746841 It is possible to fit the Thermostart unit used in the 885 instead of the ether plug. You can make your own piping using hoses and fitting your own electrical lead from the key switch to the Thermostart unit, but you will need the Thermostart, ref (1) and the 4-position key switch, ref (7). please see the following link http://partstore.caseih.com/us/parts-se ... 7ar1271837 The system will work without the coil or the reservoir but the burn time before cranking will be a little bit shorter.

I use a tip I learned on this forum quite awhile back, I remove the ether plug and point a propane torch into the manifold until it gets warm and crank it with the torch still on, this works quite well. I like the idea of adding a thermostart setup but had not considered using the ether plug port, I think I will put that on the to do list. Thanks for that!

My 880 3-cyl has a Thermostart (Sweden). It works very well, as far as I can judge. Seems a bit less brutal than ether.
