Perkins agricultural engines used to use a "glow plug" like device in
the air intake - a coil of resistance wire which as it got hot opened
a valve which allowed diesel to flow onto it, bursting into flames.

Point a hot air gun down the air intake. Alternatively, if you don't
have 240V nearby, use a blowtorch.
