Well, I opened up the line from the primer and it squirts quite a distance, I checked the oriface and it is open and clear.
The glowplug element gets warm, but not very, maybe it needs to be replaced?
I finally got it started without using ether.
As I said, it runs well when it finally starts but boy! is it a hard starter.
It cranks over fast enough and blows dark smoke out the exaust while starting/cranking. Smells like burning diesel.
Any suggestions as to what's up?
