You might want to check you lube oil for fuel dilution, 
Ron.

Is there a way to check without sending a sample and $50 to a lab ?

Yeah, change it for $20 worth of new oil. You cant go wrong even if it just had a change. A flush will do it good.

I would buy a bottle of naptha and put an amount of that in and run the engineba while with no load. Naptha is the active ingredient and base for ALL fuel and oil cleaners /  additives.

Did you ever check the compression? My roid has so much its very difficult to turn through compression on the flywheels.

Generally.... does it look like there's more oil in it than you put in it? :) That's often what kills diesels - the fuel accumulates in the sump until the conrod(s) start flinging it about, when that happens it gets into the intake air via the crank breather & before you know it you've got a runaway.
Cheers!
