I did not know about the cold start lever. I just googled it and got an exploded diagram of the cold start lever for MD11's and MD17's. I have the MD17 in my boat and unfortunately, my motor doesn't have that function. Must not have been on all the models. Wonder if it's an injector pump advance rather than extra fuel?

Thank you SailNet! Went down to the boat today to look at the engine. There is no button on the engine to push. There was a little lever attached to a wire that was frozen. That wire led up above the engine to the cockpit. In the cockpit, opposite the strangler, is another lever which is frozen. I applied a little PB Blaster to the lever at the engine, pushed in the lever, then started the engine! Now I need to find a way to free the cable.

You'd be better off starting your own thread rather than spamming the forums on every Volvo related thread.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
