I have bought another injector, also have the glow plugs coming, although the ones I did get before hadn't even got a slight blemish on them, looked like they'd never been used. Im gonna hold off on the starter motor for now but will see what the cables look like when I go under the bonnet sods law its gonna get colder now, single figures, may even see a wee flurry around the 7th
Batteries for diseasels are typically larger than their petrol counterparts for that exact reason.

I think you're right about the snow coming, the other day i noticed a strange pinky-yellowy tinge to the clouds that usually precedes snow or very cold weather at least, generally by about 2-3 weeks so would tie in with the 7tth as you suggest.

I keep threatening to sort the fuel pump priming on mine, for quite a while now i've flicked the starter so the pumps prime then turned the key again to start it which it is does "first pot over the top" - if i don't flick the starter then it cranks for several seconds before catching.

Shame you didn't try the second preheat this morning, 8C is still cold enough to need glow plugs normally. Might have given an extra clue.
