codmander---- here is a tip for starting a cold engine that is getting fuel, but just puts out white smoke when you crank it. you have to heat the incoming air. remove the air cleaner, take a propane torch and put the flame into the intake manifold while the engine is cranking. the extra heat in the air raises the final compression temperature enough so the fuel will fire. some truck engines had a burner in the intake manifold to do this, & some use electric heating coils to do this
