This diesel is equipped with the cold weather package and has both a glow plug and oiling screw plug (which I haven't used yet) which is definitely needed for Canadian winters. I had it out earlier this morning and it was minus 22 with the wind chill. Started right up with big 875CCA battery and ran flawlessly!
I used an aftermarket pulley sized between the Hydro and accessory pulley and a 1" bushing instead of trying to fabricate an adaptor sleeve to make the stock pulley fit the smaller dimension 1" shaft. It shouldn't make too much of a difference other than the overall top speed may see a slight decrease and the implements may run slighter faster.
