Paul/Peter,

The old style N American version 4-154 does not have a compression release.

Peter,

The black knob on your binnacle that you pull up to stop the engine is the fuel cut off for the injection pump.

Dave,

I have on my computer at home a one page document I got from somewhere that is used to identify the Perkin engines and what each part of the number indicates.

Thanks - I will play with the valves the end of this week. Perhaps the engine number will help the distributor to find my valve gasket.
