There was also a "calrod" heater that was available when the HT20D was a new tractor. FYI-- a "calrod" heater is kind of like the heating element on an electric stove or oven. It ran on 120V, so you would plug it in and keep the diesel engine warm so it would start with no drama. I saw one for sale on eBay within the last couple of weeks. The seller even had the engine shroud that it was installed in.

 

That rascal is still on eBay:

One thing for sure is a diesel does not like water in the fuel and it will ruin the injectors. I'd start by making sure the diesel is super clean and that a new fuel filter is installed before you try to hard to get it running. I don't know a lot about the diesels other than that. I've got two DGT 1700's and a B7800 and they run great with clean fuel and filters. Best of luck those tractors they appear to be pretty decent machines.

I think that is a good idea. I am going to bring it into the shop when I get the other 3 large frames out of there.

Diesel will grow some nasty fungus and bacteria that can clog the works as well.
