I have a volvo penta 2003 series diesel engine and I was wondering if anybody has heard of using a hand crank to start the engine. Is a manual hand crank available for this model? I thought that I read somewhere that the diesel engines w/out glow plugs could be started with a hand crank so you don''t need any other power source. I have a two battery bank on the sailboat currently and it is really tough to start w/out glow plugs in cold or cool weather and I tend to run the batteries down in the process. Just looking for feedback. Thanks
