Big Car Jump
Here's the story. It was sitting on the farm, ready to be crushed, as it
was un-running. I diagnosed that the fuel pump was open-circuit. So, after
finding out that it was going to the tip anyway, i got permission to give
it a more fitting ending.
I Spent 2 weeks worth of tinkering & changing the car to how you just saw
it. I know theres been some controversy about the paint work on the car,
post finding out that people are frustrated - But at the end of the day, i
spent the time getting the thing fixed and running - Saving it from the
bull-dozer.. for the time being. If this car was simply just sent to the
wreckers, no one would be watching it it anyway.
It was painted yellow to contrast nicely against the colors of the farm on
camera. Personally, i hate yellow. The camo-paint job was kinda nice
Cheers to all of you that made this happen. It was a LOT of fun.
CrazyBritishBloke was driving the DPP pushing the Car, whilst George was
driving the Honda beside it, to ensure the car stayed on path ! At about
1/4 of the way into the push, with the motor already in N and reving its
tit's off (Throttle cable wired open) - via a rope, Drive was selected,
which caused the car to take off on its own. The rest... is history !
Runaway Diesel Defender 200 TDI
Joes landrover defender 200 TDI started for the first time after a years
rebuild and this is what happens when the engine runs off its own oil
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.
Renault Laguna blown turbo
This was my Laguna 02,
Whilst driving pretty fast on a motorway it suddenly lost over a half of
its power. I pulled over to see what was it but found nothing. I wanted to
continue to drive as I had a date but when I started the engine the rev
counter hand went all the way up and the engine obviously was making a lot
of noise. I wanted to stop the engine pressing the button but it wouldn't
work then I saw a lot of smoke that made me scared :) I ripped out the
access card to stop the engine but surprisingly it wouldn't work either and
after a minute or so of trying I hit the idea to stall it on 1st gear with
with the brakes on - thankfully it worked out. I found myself up in the
smoke in the middle of motor way and a couple of minutes later the fire
brigade was with me but there was nothing to put out.
Called AA to get it of the motorway and that was the very last straw, never
ever Renault again, sold it for parts! didn't get on the date and don't
think the bird believed my story :)
MTU 8V 396 diesel engine catastrophic failure
This is a MTU 8V 396 diesel engine blowing up. This video was shown during
a rebuild class I just took. Not really sure what happened. My guess would
be that it spun a bearing, causing a piston to try and sieze, in turn
throwing a rod. Pay attention at 24 seconds to the engine torquing hard to
the left and the terrible sound it makes until it lets go...
