Starting Fluid - Why not?
I helped my dad get one of his old tractors running a couple weeks ago & we had to use some starting fluid. Today I happened to look at the can & noticed it says "For gas and diesel engines". I've always read on here that we should never use starting fluid on our 7.3s, & I'm pretty sure that I've repeated that in a few of my posts.
Why shouldn't we use it if we need it? Is there any real info that supports the "never use starting fluid" crowd? I know a couple of diesel mechanics & they use it when needed (bigger engines than ours) & say it doesn't/won't hurt anything. I've never used starting fluid on my truck.
