When one engine cylinder is isolated, then one problem that may occur is a “dead spot” during manoeuvring. This is due to the air start valve being isolated for that unit, and is more likely when a smaller number of cylinders are present. The Master must be informed that this could occur, and the remedy would be to kick the engine in the opposite direction, and then restart in the required direction.

Please Explain, how reversing helps to starting of the engine, if engine stops in dead spot ?

Is it require cranking by means of Flywheel rotation or anything else ?
