On those old Cats once you got the pony motor warmed up you pulled the decompresion lever and started to turn the engine over. This got the lube oil loosened up. Never try to start before you had oil pressure then close decompressor and open throttle. Always shot of the gas on the pony motor and let it run dry otherwise thcarb float would bounce on rough ground and all of the gas went ito the base.
If it's free, It's for me. If for pay, leave it lay.
