Hi LR1MICK and Willw

Take a little break, and think of the Pyrenees snow paradise. Enjoy the moment... "The dream commands life".

Cheers

 Not the first diesel that ran backwards after being almost stalled.
 Did it myself the first time down the pulling track with a John Deere two cylinder diesel 720 in 3rd gear instead of in 2nd . She was lugging down and I was 100 milli seconds too slow pulling the clutch. She kicked over and ran backwards blowing smoke and the oil bath air cleaner oil out the intake stack. Oil all over the hood and myself. 
   Fortunately the V4 gas starting engine was in good tune and fired up or that would have added to the embarrassment . Rolled it over 7 to 8 revolutions without compression before the oil pump re-primed and the pressure gauge began reading. Added compression and fuel and she barked to life.

A lot of blow lamp start or hot bulb engines can run backwards quite easily even the Lanz Bulldog tractors can do this if you dont bounce the flywheel off compression at the right time. Then you get 3 reverse and one forward gear.
