at 21 to 1 my diesel does not bump start well even in 5th. i have elected to just let it idle and pop into neutral, and of course match rpm's clutch out in neutral before going back to 5th, to save the synchronizers.

at idle it uses about a pint of fuel an hour.

i need a compression release, prob is the valves only clear the pistons by 0.050" on this engine, could invent a release in the glow plug, i guess.
