'56 White 9000TD: First Start in 18 Years
It took my brother, my dad, and myself the better part of a day to get
everything tuned up and repaired so that we could fire up my 1956 White
9000TD for the first time in 18 years. It only took two sniffs of ether
(one for each start up) to get it running. We ran it for almost an hour
while checking over everything, starting and stopping it to see how it
started on diesel only, to fill the oil system back up, and to check out
the hydraulics (no clutch yet, started it up with the hydraulics in gear).

1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better
fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with
fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds
to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first
firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine

This is a Cold Start on a 1959 mack b61T. It was sitting about 2 years in a
trailer lot and was bought by a used car company and was then sold to me.
it took 2 days to get her running. Unfortunately i didnt get a video of the
first start in 2 years because it was raining... but she runs like a champ

and run all new battery cables from the starter to the batteries! thanks
D8H 36A First start in ten years
This Caterpillar hasn't been started for ten years because of a broken pony
engine. We made replaced pony motor with a hydraulic motor to get it
started. Starting the main engine required almost ten minutes of cranking
and some ether.
