know if you need a rebuild, guaranteed minimum expenses you will have,

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

Barn Find '66 Buick Hits the Autocross! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 18
On this bonus episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, it's the return of our '66
Buick Special convertible. In episode 5, we showed you how this car had
been abandoned in an Arizona backyard for 33 years with the top down.
Freiburger and Finnegan flew into town, got the car running with the help
of Rick Pewe from 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine, and drove it home to Los
Angeles. Watch that original episode here:
The car proved to be a ton of fun, so now we are turning it into a daily
driver. In this video, Freiburger and Camaro Performers magazine's Nick
Licata bring you along for the autocross, slalom and brake testing of the
car's all-new performance suspension from Classic Performance Products
(CPP). It's a sight you won't soon forget.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend

Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no
oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no
lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be
dead in minutes!
