cold country ?

I worked at Mercury one winter , compared to the Northern rockies, I thought it was summer. I have an 01 7.3 and it is hard to start 9 months of the year, I have a friend that is a tractor mechanic and he said he would put some gasoline on a rag and put it in the air intake to start his, I haven't tried that. I have been told NOT to the use ether, some of the tractors have an ether squirter built in, and My case 580 needs ether 6 months of the year to start if not plugged in.
