Someone will correct me if I'm wrong
But I'd be very careful using starting fluid (ether) on your diesel. I seem to recall reading in Nigel Caulder's 'Boatowners Mechanical & Electrical Manual' that he recommends using WD 40 as a starting primer for diesel engines.
I think that the ether is just too volatile for compression engines.
