It's a small single cylinder aircooled Diesel of a few horsepower at an
almighty 3000rpms. I'm thinking that it's about 20 years old and at the
moment is a donkey engine driving a small hydraulic pump for a low loader
trailer of mine.
It runs well, but at some point (I suspect) has lost Ducati's official
starting gubbins and now one has to wind a rope around a part of the
flywheel - it requires a good deal of strength, just about 100% of what's
available from me :-) and is time consuming. I'd like to do something about
it but haven't the foggiest idea what to, or where to look!
Any ideas? At the moment I'm eyeing up a small aircooled Lister that I know
of, but mating the pump to it properly might prove a bit longwinded.
