Apparently it can get under the skin and cause gangrene.

Best to find another way to check.
***Ditto. Any pressurized oil (hydraulic typically) is dangerous as it is easy to "inject" it through the skin and get it into your blood stream. Can really mess you up.***

Re: Perkins 4236 Won't Fire Up

For those who think their starters aren't spinning the engine fast enough be sure to check all the electrical connections before you start tinkering with the starter itself. The problem is often one of corrosion and one of the many connections between your batter and the motor. They need to be cleaned and tightened periodically.
