Satoh made some great tractors.  You can still get as many dozen as you want imported from Japan, they are common as dirt over there.

Is there any way to make those old diesels easier to start in the cold?

 

I've found skidding logs easier using a curved metal plate like this one

I made one like it for under 50 bucks in steel, helped a lot, good luck

That skidded is a great idea. I may have to try that. If a diesel is hard to start in the cold like mine, it's my understanding that there isn't enough compression. All I have to do is get a few thousandths shaved off the head and I would be in good shape. I just worry about screwing it up.

That skid is awesome. I gotta make one of those. Usually skid logs with the 4 wheeler.
