    Not speculating, just first hand knowledge of what EE power units can be like when cold starting/not starting from sometime. There is a reason why Laira referred to 50033 as ‘old Smokey Joe’

    Cannot see the problem in pulling her outside, telephone the fire brigade to warn them, and then start her up.

    We go through the same procedure with controlled burn's at our golf club, without any need for fire brigade attendance.
