Drilling a hole in inlet manifold was suggested nearly two years ago in post 37. 

 

 

Looks like you mentioned it and suggested not to do it! Quick start injection starting has been around for over 30 years.

GRP151 has been doing it  and it sounds like its been working for him

 

You mentioned it and suggested not to???...and whats your point?

You have trouble reading and comprehending?  Your post is now saved for posterity.  You may notice good brains work alike.  GRP151 suggested exactly the same as me and did not advise to inject starting fluid!

Not sure who has the trouble reading and comprehending but your link says....(note in red if your not understanding this)

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starting_fluid

 

Diethyl ether, with a small amount of oil, a trace amount of a stabilizer and a hydrocarbon propellant, has historically[1] been used to help start internal combustion engines because of its low 160 °C (320 °F) autoignition temperature.[2] Some current products sold as starting fluid are mostly volatile hydrocarbons such as heptane, (the main component of natural gasoline) with only a small portion of diethyl ether, and carbon dioxide (as a propellant).[3][4]It is often useful when starting direct injected diesel engines or lean burn spark engines running on alcohol fuel. Some formulations include butane or propane as both propellant and starting fuel.

 

Caution is required when using starting fluid with diesel engines that have preheat systems in the intake or glow-plugs installed, as the starting fluid may pre-ignite, leading to engine damage

This means DON'T over do it unless your a moron and a small squirt is NOT going to lead to engine damage!
