Detroit Diesel V12 going to show
1968 Kenworth K125 hauling tractors to a show. Carla also wanted to redeem
herself from taking a 20 second video, so brought the camera! Will get one
of the Emeryville loaded when we have a chance.
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
Going thru the gears in a CAT V8 powered 80 ton road train
Only watch this if you like big bore V8s and you've got good speakers with
the volume cranked right up! Cab ride on the Nullarbor Plain in South
Australia near the roadhouse. If you've ever wondered how long it takes to
get up to speed @ 80 tons with 600 HP this will give you some idea. More
vids to follow later.
Listen close and you can hear that 5000hp Cat growlin. PART I.
An empty Utah Rwy train has just left Martin. The third unit is a MK5000c
with 5000hp of CAT V12 3612 in its hood. Turn it up and listen close, and
you can that unit growling. Bet they would sound good with a 3 unit set. MK
was the first to build a high horsepower locomotive, with
GE following about a year later with a 6000 hp locomotive. In 2001, Utah
Railway returned the units because of main bearing failure. The 3612's
where pulled out, and replaced with prime movers from retired UP SD50's.
There where returned with one less cooling fan (3 instead of 4) and 1500 hp
less, and classed as SD50-3.
More great sounds are in PART I when the train returns to Martin and
prepares to head out to Soldier Summit with 36000+hp. Video taken April
2001. Thanks for watching. Jackmp294.5™...
If you go to Wikipedia, and type in MK5000C, it will take you to a link
talking about the MK5000C...
