    your 82 has a 6.5?

    BTW, this really should go in the diesel forum.

    Healthy injection pump status can be hard to tell- Cold startup issues are ussually not related. Warm/ hot startup issues are, since as the fuel is thinner, the pump has problems keeping up pressure.

    Long healthy life for your injectors can be obtained by using a good water/fuel seperator and filtering down to the finest micron you can. A good diesel fuel conditioner cant hurt either.

    yes my 82 has a 6.5L :flipoff: it was swapped..
    it starts fine after it is warm, never has a problem. i will try the fuel conditioner u are saying..
    as for putting it in the diesel forum,i cant cuz this is the only place i can post until i pay.. i am also wondering if it could be glow plugs going bad, i've read if one is bad it can cause hard starting too..??
