@Mur HuwcunThey shouldn't be a pig to start at all. My 250 and 275 with inline pump starts lovely now. Do you know about the 12v replacement heater plugs that you can buy or just make some using car heater plugs.
Most probably your injector pump will need an overhaul aswell, the elements wear and loose injection pressure
Par for the course I think. One little item which does have a pronounced effect on the starting, is the condition of the small end bushes, even the slightest wear here drops the piston down the bore, so lowering the compression.

wire them in parallel, by pass the pepper pot, heat for 8/10 seconds and away it will go
Indeed it does have a popping sound when it first fires into life. Also it is hunting a little on tickover. And it is also hunting when it isn't given any welly on the throttle, but in my opinion this is perfectly normal for an inline pump.This is the most reliable way of heating your nasher
Done it many time the plugs last so much longer than the original types.
Also check tappets good battery and clean starter out
Does it have a poping sound on tickover like a valvy sound but different.
Yes hunting is characteristics wouldnt worry to much of that,Indeed it does have a popping sound when it first fires into life. Also it is hunting a little on tickover.

How tight a fit should the butterfly be? Both seem the same plus similar to another manifold I have that came from somewhere. Stupid question, but should I close the throttle when going down hill? Not so easy on PTO work. 275 was pretty useless on the conventional baler going down!!!Throttle butterfly worn, and not sealing? Excess play in linkage?
Will have to investigate this further. I did some work on the engine few years ago, cylinder hone, new rings, new shells, checked and lapped the valves in and the injector pump had 4 new elements. It starts much better now and pulls much better. Just before the mini refurb it could be parked on the yard in gear and would slowly roll forward with the engine turning over!!! Starting it when warm was a tow or bump start affair aswell!!! It's what happens when you buy then out of a hedge for £100 for parts and then decide it would be a shame tto scrap it.....,,Butterfly should be a very good fit, with no wear in the bearings. I have been told that general engine wear can cause this, worn valve seats can lower manifold depression, for example, as the cylinder charge is blown back into the manifold. Tight valve clearances on the inlets, and wide on the exhausts can also cause manifold pressurisation, this shows up by some very strange noises being heard from the air inlet area.
I'm no ploughman by a long way but I do have a yellow Bamford/KV three furrow that I've adapted down to two!! Just need a few miles on the beach to shine it up!!! Oh, and maybe a vari touch top cover for the tractor!!!You could put a plough on, and do Sarn match. I too, have fallen into the too good to scrap trap! I have a Fisher Humphries trailer plough that I bought to save it from the scrap man! Never get to use it, the world style kit is so much easier to transport for one thing.
