    Yeah stuff easy start. Better to fix the problem. Look at that female celebrities nose.

    New to the T4 engine and problems here but got lots of stuff to do with mine so sharp learn curve for me I reckon.

    There is a reason they fit a clear section in the fuel lines - to spot bubbles.

    It is good for diagnosis - if the engine fires or tries to fire on easy start, you know you have things like compression/cam timing etc OK and need to focus on fuel supply/pump timing.

    Yeah, finding the problem ... and all that helps you get there if it's just temporary is ok for sure.

    I remember when I started work on a farm after college ... my bosses old general work horse Massey Ferg 135 would never start with out the stuff in winter , that thing was left out under the stars for so many years but always started in the end, winter tested the battery though. To be fair it was maintained once a year at a place in Newport South Wales near the farmers market, not sure what they did but I used to take it from Cardiff to Newport lol, great skive.

    Knowledge is the main thing I reckon, when you have hung around something for long enough you get to know it inside out, trial and error and other things you pick up.
