Ether to start 1990 E350
Hi every one. This is my first post here and it may be an interesting one. I just purchased a 1990 E350 with a 7.3 IDI non turbo. I have had the powerstroke before and loved it.
But any way, here's my problem. first of all This non turbo is all new to me. Second, the previous owner would use a shot of ether to start the van in the mornings. he was the one and only owner and seemed to take care of the van really well but now unless i squirt some ether in the air intake it wont start. and even then it take almost ten second of cranking. i know this isnt normal and want to correct the problem.
in general its really hard to start whether its hot or cold. and since we are in florida it never really is cold.
once you start it in the morning the rest of the day it is fine.
so.....any input would be great..
also since the layout on the van 7.3l is a little different that the f series, does anyone know if the procedure for turning up the fuel is any different or not.
thanks for any insight...
