Been using WD-40 to goose recalcitrant diesels since the very beginning, well over 40 years ago. Thanks for the updated info and a look at modern starting fluid. Will definitely use the good stuff from now on. Also, Calder is the bible when it comes to boating basics. Very good article.
Thanks Cap'n. I was happy to learn about this. I want to take good care of my engine.
You're correct Sir, re Calder. He can point me in the right direction and is book is simply essential boat gear. I might know how to fix or even troubleshoot something however with his guidance I can be more aware of what should be expected.
I suspect all of us when outside our field of knowledge want to avid being taken advantage. My copy of Calder's provides a level of assurance so that hopefully I can detect when I'm dealing with someone less than honorable. Fortunately those are few and far between... thanks Cap'n Sid for your comment. It is appreciated.
