'blow by'  * ... I have done more research since.    Its still in the shed, I think it needs to

'away'  for  big job, when ever money is available ????

 

*  air hose from filter to engine split and sucked in crap . scoured or . just  (hopefully ), deposited crap, in side pistons. doesnt  start, makes horrible noise on turnover and black smoke - maybe compression valve damage  as well  ?

You might be able to rinse it out by pouring kerosene through the engine.diesels have high compression and they compression ignite.no sparkplugs.ie if the compression is low it will be hard or impossible to start.

Oh, just pour it through ?  Someone else said to crank it through - hence the confusion.
