G'day mates,

We are in need of a manual for this engine to find out why we can't start it on petrol.

We can start it with "Start You B*****d" and it will then will suck in the petrol and run. We are not considering the Paraffin side of the tank yet until we can start it from the petrol side first.

Any help would be appreciated.

John Withers in Perth does reprints of Douglas literature. His post/advert can be found here-,148.0.html

Down near the bottom, under industrial Engines, item IND901 should be what you are looking for.
