I walked down to the shop and pulled a 70 diesel owners manual. (B&D would be proud) 1. Turn on the gas two or three turns. 2.Set the cranking engine throttle lever to the right in the start position. 3.Turn the ingition light switch to the I position. 4.Hold choke leverto the left. The engine will not continue to run in this position, when engine starts release the choke. 5 On tractors equipped with starter pedal step on pedal to operate electric starting motor. Release when engine starts 6.On tractors without starter pedal push starting control lever forward to operate the electric cranking motor. Starting the Diesel engine. 1 Allow the cranking engine to run a short while One to three minutes. 2. Place cranking engine throttle lever in run position to the left. 3.SLOWLY pull the starting control lever all the way to the rear. Movement through the first half of lever travel relieves compressonin the diese engine. Movement through the second half of lever travel engages the cranking engine clutch. Lever will remain in the extreme rear position. Allow the cranking engine to motor the diesel engine UNTIL OIL PRESSURE REGESTERS ON OIL GUAGE. 4. Push the starting control lever forward until the swivel almost contacts the jam nuton the transmisson control rod. This put diesekl engine on full compression. Allow the engine to motor a few revolutions then advance speed control lever halfway. 5. AS soon as the diesel engine starts and runs push starting control lever forward enough to trip the transmisson control rod. I hope this helps. Rodney

Wow that does help thank you very much for typing all that! That does seem a somewhat complicated process. Now I need to familiarize myself with where all the levers are. Thank you
