Ether is not as bad as most people make it out to
be,after all some trucks come with ether assist start
from the factory, the problem comes from ether abuse.
99% of the people I have observed using ether use way
too much. If you are hearing the loud knocking, you have
used too much! The best method is, while someone else
cranks the engine, apply about a 1/2-1 second spurt to
the intake. If this is not enough to get the engine to
fire you have other problems. I have had some success
with WD40, mostly on high compression gas engines and
warm diesels.
