      Uhm? Diesel. lol

      Cetane, not Octane.

      No lean if you run out of squirt either. Just loose cooling, EGT's will rise and engine will loose VE.

      Kinda seems like you have another head or gasket issue.. its clearly bubbling in to the coolant. If it was "boiling over" with no pressure in the system.. something aint working right.

      Uhm, They both have pre-chambers ?
