Rap 24 hp semidiesel, second start attempt.
This video illustrates what happends when these two stroke semidiesels run
out due to too much oil in the crankcase. With my left hand, I block the
injection pump, so from that time the engine run on lube oil only, no
diesel at all. I have heard lots of stories about this from decades ago but
this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it is captured on video.
Luckily we had blocked most of the air intake prior to starting and ended
at somewhat over 1000 rpm. Max operating rpm is 425-450. With full air
supply, I would guess this engine would reach thousands of rpm and I could
only guess what would have happened then...
The electric glowplug short circuited so we had to rely on the propane
burner which had slightly low temperature. In this startattempt, we used an
acetylene burner and got the glowplug bright red. The crankcase was,
unfortunately, filled with too much oil so the engine was running on its
lube oil from the crankcase instead of diesel. Still some trouble with the
fuel injection, doesn't feel right when injecting diesel manually.
RUN AWAY Detroit Diesel! 453-T

BMW Engine Crash
Tire burnouts are boring. This guy actually burns his whole engine out ;-)
Although i don't think he intended to do so. I wonder what would have
happened, if the other guy did not incidentally come along to shut the
1998 6.5 Turbo Diesel defective PMD runs away
I had trouble figuring out why this truck was acting up so I posted this
vid. It's not here to be entertaining. OK I could not get it to run away
completely on this vid, but this is what it does when it runs away. It will
go over 4000 rpm and spins the tires when in gear with the brakes on. It
only seems to happen as it's warming up. Once it's hot it seems to be fine.
The truck always starts and for the most part runs perfectly. Turning off
the ignition stops the engine right away and there is hardly any smoke. The
truck runs fine after a restart. This truck has been repaired the accurate
diesel PMD was bad and a new one fixed the problem.
