A general question about IH "gasoline start" Diesel engines as built from 1932 to 1962, I was trying to explain what an IH gasoline start Diesel engine was, the person I was taking to asked me was it a "Direct Injection" or "Indirect Injection" type of Diesel. My '"educated guess" was an early style of Direct Injection as the injection nozzle enters the top the combustion chamber near the intake valve. My understanding of Indirect Injection diesels engines is that the injector nozzles are above combustion chamber, in a separate space and then fuel flows down past a glow-plug. The person responded that Direct Injection is more modern style of diesel engine. Any comments from any-one on this discussion board? P.S. Happy Christmas and all the best for 2019 - Regards from Michael H. Australia🐨
