Does it start (with gas fuel) on a flame to heat the hot bulb?  I'd love to see the hot bulb details as you get there, Butch.  Hot bulb has always intrigued me. Thanks for sharing your project photos!

Amazing engineering.  Is the hot bulb because it's too low compression to run on diesel otherwise, or is the compression changed after the fuel switchover and the hot bulb is just for transition?

Mark Cherry's smartplugs- smartplugs.com are essentially a platinum catalyst assisted hot bulb. He did also apply a bit of current to the platinum wire to advance ignition timing when/if needed. 

It's interesting how old ICE tech gets recycled as new tech.

Am I right in thinking that hot-bulb technology was in place before diesel cold-start compression/combustion chambers were properly understood?

Hi Butch, I`m already enjoying this new rebuild and you have only just started. Please post stuff about the governor mechanism and fuel injection set up. Where are you finding spares for an engine this old? I guess you will have to make a lot of it yourself. Can`t wait to see the finished product.

Spare parts are mostly non existent other than things like rings and magneto parts that are not specific to this engine. What ever is broken or worn requires a trip to the steel rack followed by a few hours working the machine tools.

Thanks, 38ac.  I suspected they were fixed low compression.  No penalty for that at 300 rpm, plenty of time for fuel burn, and the hot bulb solves the ignition at low compression issue.

A most interesting and very challenging engine restoration project!
