Re: Volvo MD7a

Grand River :

If you have decent compression, and are delivering fuel, the motor really should start reliably and promptly. Remember to use near-full throttle for the starting, then throttle back quickly when the motor starts.

It is not a good idea to use starting fluids (or "narcotics" as we like to call them here) as the motor will get addicted to them and you will need them all the time.

If you have to use narcotics, then you must, but only if you must.

Tony...note that this thread was started and the conversations ended almost a year ago. You might have better luck getting an answer by starting a new one.

Re: Volvo MD7a

But anyway...I have the same engine. How do you know oil isn't making it up there? I'm assuming you have already checked the dipstick to ensure adequate oil in the pan?
