Lower compression, high static timing, and larger injection volume.

Yeah I saw the same, a CR can pretty much tune that out but cold combustion was improved dramatically.

I run lightning juice and stanadyne pump lube. Low compression is a big factor. I have tried straight diesel by accident and after 3 cans of ether I figured out that the wrong can of fuel was put in the tank. Even after the cylinder temps got up it still wouldn't run on its own.

Wow I had no clue these engines were that hard to start/ run. Is there a certain timing or compression this happens at? I have heard most people say you start on either and switch to fuel slowly

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex...it takes a touch of genius- and alot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

I'm still down at 12.5:1 cr. I can only speak for myself but I'm over 35* timing but straight diesel just isn't hot enough for a good enough burn at idle with the limited air, big injectors and low CE. I was using 45 cetane fuel also

Just curious but would adding ethanol help? IT seems to me most OTC additives have ethanol as the main ingredient.

C'mon man, this argument is hilarious. I'm going to buy a bunch of different brands of Styrofoam cups so I can sell them to pullers to test their fuel.

Exactly my thoughts. Apparently the fuel I've gotten in the past must have been "hot" out of the pump since styrofoam willingly melted into it...

We tested the fuel we run in our trucks here...it passed. Took over 10min to melt into the cup.
