Diesel fuel requirs a hotter spark for ignition and burns pretty dirty, better off with K1 kerosene. You could change the ignition system to a mutifuel but it's not cheap and may not mount to your current houseing but would still work. As for restarting it is one of two things: the hight heat limit control or most likely teh CAD flame sensor, both of which you can get from Mr. Heater for less than 3 bucks each. the mount for the limit control is different but you can simply remount it to your heater mount. Same thing with the flme sensor, the wires are different but you can splice the to your wire harness and it will be fine. there is no wrong way to hook them up so don't worry about ground or hot.
