Default 1984 Perkins diesel

Just bought a 1984 Perkins diesel as an around town small work truck. I love it 49,000 miles, everything in good condition. Got a couple questions about it if anyone will oblige

What is that pull handle on the floor behind the drivers seat?

How much is this truck really worth?

Tell me really what the cold start pull handle does located by the right knee

I am jealous.. You got a great find.
I always wanted to get a Perkins and install a turbo for it.
