George, there are plenty of old diesels that start first flick most times, and never more than 2 or 3. Not to mention any team race diesel.
Using a starter just takes longer, is more complicated and is unkind to the engine.
I just don't mess with engines that don't start easily, that's all.
I took a short video a few weeks ago, of about 20 consecutive first flick starts on a 1949 ED Mk IV, with the intention of posting it in this kind of context, but I haven't got around to opening a youtube account yet...
