No first hand knowledge of the 38B4. My previous Universal/Kubota had glow plugs. Thirty seconds of preheating usually was plenty for a quick start in warm weather. I would release the glow plug switch before cranking however (to reduce current draw). My current Yanmar has no glowplugs. Manual says apply full throttle to start. Seems to work.
