Default With all the talk of alternative fuels lately...

Has anyone thought of the possibility of turning a China Girl into a 2 stroke diesel? I remember there used to be kits you could buy for glow engines to convert them to a diesel, pretty much just a high compression head with a thumb screw where the glow plug would be to adjust the compression.

I know there used to be two cycle diesel engines YEARS ago in trucks and there are still big two stroke diesels being used in large engines today.

You would think all that would be needed was a super high compression head (16/1) and a glow plug to get things going. Now if these little 2 cycles could handle it is another thing but it would be pretty cool if it would work.
