Giant 22+ TON Engine Start up - Great Sound!

I originally thought this was a "hit and miss" type engine because of the flywheel configuration, but after some research learned it is a 2 stroke diesel engine that originally ran a large cotton gin. Story of this massive engine. This is a 110 HP 2 cycle 2 cylinder hot head oil engine manufactured by the Continental Gin Company in Birmingham, Alabama. this engine was located in Yuma, Arizona, and was in use at a cotton gin from 1924 to 1949. SInce this engine has no load on it, it is pretty quiet, but folks said when it was in service and under load, it could be heard for over 12 miles. It is started using compressed air and both of the hot heads are heated using torches, though I did not notice that when they started this. Interesting Specs: The weight of this beast is over 22 tons. Each flywheel weighs 4260 lbs. Bore is 14" Stroke is 20" It runs on a mixture of oil and diesel. RPM 225 -- http://gasengine.farmcollector.com/Farm-Shows/CONTINENTAL-SEVEN-ONE-TEN.aspx This was at the Antique Farm Equipment Show in Tulare, CA. I will be posting more old tractor and truck footage the next week or so.

Russischer Sternmotor - Russian Radial Engine Start and Run
Beim traditionsreichen Traktorentreffen in Burkhardtsdorf ist seit einiger Zeit immer ein großer russischer Sternmotor aus einer Antonow dabei. Der wurde natürlich auch gefilmt. Da es am Morgen sehr kühl und feucht war, machte er einige Probleme beim starten aber dann lief er. Typisch für alte Sternmotoren ist die große Rauchentwicklung beim Start, da eine größere Ölmenge in die unteren Zylinder läuft, die dann verbrannt wird. Der Sound war wie immer ohrenbetäubend.
