If one needs more help and comfort for starting in cold weather, I can't over-emphasize the importance of heaters. These can be block heaters that heat up the anti-freeze, or even the cheap magnetic heaters that stick to the bottom of the oil pan and heat up the oil. These have none of the adverse effects of ether if over-used, and they are cheaper than bearings, etc. to replace. I have even used the magnetic heaters on an aluminum engine by setting it on a block to hold it in place. Heaters have the advantage of removing the primary damage of an engine starting when the oil is cold, because the oil is already warmed up.
