V12 Detriot Diesel 525HP
Setting the engine up and breaking it in.Remember this engine is just being started after a rebuild so that's why it's smoking from the assembly lube and the rack will be set-up to stop the hunting etc etc. Then the oil is changed and the engine painted. These engine's go into Euclid mining rock trucks,and they were in many other equipment/vehicles.The engine has rebuild heads,turbo's, blower, water pump,all internal parts and the air compressor All done in the great north of Canada

How a 2 stroke detroit diesel engine runs
I have a couple videos of my 2 stroke detroit diesel powered pickup here on youtube, and I have gotten hundreds and hundreds of questions about how in the world it runs, and lots of people who do not believe that it really is a 2 stroke. So, I'm sorry, I don't have the best voice in the world, and I'm not the best at explaining things or getting the right words to come out, but I did my best in this video to try to give you an idea of how it runs.

1905 Reid 15hp oilfield stationary engine
This is a 1905 Reid 15 hp engine that my Dad just rebuilt/restored. The cart it sits on, He built himself from pictures. The rear wheels are made from 30" pipe, and the fronts are 16". The frame is some left over I beam and the steering is his own design.
The fuel is propane with a needle valve to regulate flow. The ignition is some old military coil with a sparkplug screwed into an adapter in the head that he made and a micro switch mounted on the base with a trigger mounted to a disc bolted to the crank. The flyball gov. isn't connected yet, but it will be soon to help control rpm.
Cummins Diesel Engine First Start
Starts at 3:10 ---
This engine and its twin were built by my father. He installed them in his 33' Bertram. That is a boat, which would explain the water coming out the Exhaust to somebody who knows anything about marine engines. Sorry about all the cranking. I meant to cut out a large section of that, but somehow I forgot about it. Thanks for watching. Ignorant questions and comments will be ignored. Read the comments if you really need to know why there's water coming out the Exhaust, it cranks for so long, the paint is white, etc. etc. etc.
