Brian, I have to say that I agree pretty much with all you say, and would certainly defer to your vastly greater experience of diesels than mine on the rest....apart from the above. After being very happy with my E.D. Bees I made the mistake when I wanted a 1.5 of buying an E.D. Hornet. What a God-awful engine that was! EVERYONE in my club had a go at it and it simply would not start. (Starters being unheard of in those days we couldn't try one of them) Eventually I part exchanged it for a lovely Frog 150 and life turned beautiful again. So there was at least one diesel from the old days that was an absolute dog, and I had it. E.D. obviously did learn how to make a 1.5 as I later had a Super Fury which was superb.
