I've never been a fan of 2 cycle engines but in years gone by I drove a million miles or more behind the wheels of several 2 cycle diesel trucks of the 6-71 and 8-71 Detroit Diesel variety. And when I was a kid my grandfather had an International engine that cranked on gasoline then was switched over to diesel after it was warmed up. It was used to run his sawmill.
Has anyone ever tried to convert one of these chinese 2 strokes from gas to diesel? I'm sure a glow plug would be required along with some changes in the way the air/fuel mix is delivered to the cylnder but it seems it might could be made to work.
