Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Piston making for a modeldiesel engine at home (MK-16 rebuild) Part 1
Hello again for a very interesting episode.In this clip I show you,how I
make my pistons self. Its a part of the rebuild of my MK-16, aprox.1956.
I use always old carengine camshafts.With that material( high grade
castiron) I got good expirience in the past. I done a lot pistons so far,
but in the begining,I lost a lot work,because the expirience was
missing.The diesels got moore closer tolerances than a glow engines,because
of the high compression.
The old MK-16 was in very bad shape,impossibel ,to be a runner.The rear
disc was worn out,the 2 bearings, very bad,even one broken....the prop
collector was not from this engine (and broken also) and the most important
thing,no compression at al.
I buy a lot special tools,what makes it possibel,to do this work.But its
stil a kind "on the edge" job. Its not easy to do it with this hobby
In 2 evenings with each moore then 2,5 houers,It was finally done.
...But I make a mistake( also a lot in the text,ha,ha...sorry)
...I shoud first make the final size with the grinding as first
step...and after that,drill the wrist pin hole. .Because the holes have a
influence on the grinding pattern,its moore accurate to grind a closed
Because of that mistake,I got extra work,to get the piston lapped wel and
sealing wel.Its now oke,but next time I must not forget it...save much
time,and fare better result! I l also dont make the rings on the outer
piston. The wal thicknes is less like the orginal piston.I wil risk a crack
forming or even a broken part...so I deside not to take the risk.It run
fine anyway without it.
The MK-17 also dont have it anymoore...But I see this strange aplication
also on my Russian K-16 engine from 1950 !..same factory I asume. )
I hope you like the visit in my smal workshop...enjoy part 2!
PISTONS @ 10.000RPM
THIS WAS DONE ON A SHIT BACKROAD THAT LEADS TO A FARM NO MOTORBIKES COME
DOWN THIS ROAD UNLESS THEY WANT A SACK OF POTATOES BUT TRY PUTTING THEM ON
.The second part was filmed on a more used road but oil had all gone by
then so stop worrying i ride a bike to you no.
Amazing footage of a set of normal 4 cylinder car pistons moving at normal
speed and more. As a petrol head i no this happens but to actually see the
speed for real is just wicked. My favirite bit is when they look like there

In the eighth video of this LS1 Rebuild video series, I talk about checking
piston ring end gap, installing piston rings, installing pistons and
connecting rods into the block, checking oil clearance, torquing to
specification and checking side play.

Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.

I've had more than one request for this and since I had a few hours while
sitting on my butt waiting for my Dodge engine to show up I thought I would
fill the time by making this video for you. I have to say that after the
first edit I wasn't too happy and went back and reshot not once but twice
and even then I still felt I didn't cover it the way I liked. I should
really start scripting these videos, it would make my life soo much easier.
Anyway don't be too rough on me if you have differing opinions as I'm
willing to accept them in the comments if you are nice about it but if your
going to tear me a new one then please make a video of your own explaining
why as at least then we will be on the same playing field.
