Question about Cars & Trucks
The List is Long and Distinguished. AIR/FUEL/COMPRESSION/PROPER TIMING are the basics. Confirm each one. Does it Spark? Is there Fuel (Spray Starting Fluid to see if there is any attempt).

It's fine to use a battery with a higher cold crank rating than original. Consider the rating in the manual to be a minimum requirement. You'll be fine as long as the physical dimensions and terminal placement are compatible with your car. The battery manufacturer's guide should tell you which battery fits your car.

I had same problem in varius trucks and motorhomes with the same engine size (460)and this is caused by excesive heat from the engine in all 460's,when hot if I stoped at a gas station to fill,once I tryed to start it again it felt like the battery was almost dead and bearly turned the engine over.what I did was that I added an after market engine oil cooler and that fixed the problem.

Your diesel land cruiser has a separate glow plug for each cylinder. Their function is to pre heat a swirl chamber prior to injecting fuel into the cylinder. Since you have no spark on a diesel, your combustion comes from superheated fuel and high compression...for you vehicle I believe the compression ratio is 21.6:1 as compared to 8.0:1 for a gasoline model. If you are not getting combustion readily, then either the glow plugs are not getting the fuel preheated properly before starting, or your compression is low. I would tend to believe it is a glow plug issue since they only stay on for a second. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
