Just to reiterate what Loren wrote.... just think how much cylinder pressure
you need to stop the piston from moving near the top of the stroke.  That's
what you are getting with ether and the cranking speed drops to an almost
stop.  LOTS of force expended in moving not much of anywhere, equals more
black greasy fingers eventually when things break or rods bend, heads crack,
rings crack, head bolts stretch, gaskets blow.... the list goes on.
