Man, that brings me back to cold mornings trying to get my 1970 Ford
Maverick started.  I wouldn't try this on a diesel engine unless your 
has an ether injection system.  First, you'd have a hard time figuring 
where to put it (since there's no carburetion) and if you put it in the 
tank you might pop the heads with the pressure.  

I can still see the flames shooting out of the carb...

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Ether - Motor Priming Grade

Does anyone have any information on Humco Laboratories Ether Motor 
Grade?  We are working on moving to a new building and it was found in a
cabinet.  All it says is "ether", but I am not familiar with motor 
grade.  I am treating with extreme caution.  Any information would be
greatly appreciated.
