Rebuilding Cummins Marine 6b 6bt 6bta diesel for fishing boat in Costa Rica

For complete torque specs go to: http://www.queposfishadventure.com/torque.html This is a video of us rebuilding a Cummins Marine Diesel, 5.9 liter for use in our sport fishing boat in Costa Rica. We do this every year and I really wish I had a video like this the first time I did it, so maybe this will help someone. The motor is in the boat now and has logged over 1200 hours after this rebuild.

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. Sorry about all the cranking. I meant to cut out a large section of that, but somehow I forgot about it. FAQ: Why is it white? It is common for boats to have white engines. Why is water coming out of the Exhaust? The engine is cooled by a continuous flow of seawater, or in this case water from a hose. It comes out of the Exhaust. Why is it cranking for so long? Is the starter fried now? The starter is fine. Everything was completely dry at the beginning of the video. It just took some time for the fuel to be delivered. Both engines are running (and starting) great over 5 years later. Thanks for watching.
