Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.
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

Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
Mini Cooper (Part 1/2) With Helicopter Turbine Jet Engine Smokes
Having shared the track with it at Homestead Miami Speedway in my 2002
Cooper S it was outrageously fast in a staight line but seeming dangerous
trying to turn. Are there plans to try to make it turn a corner or will
this be a drag machine? Since the Mini is a throttle by wire any thoughts
of syncronizing the two engines to the single throttle pedal?

Amazing TD9 International skidding wood through muddy river
That is a TD9 International track tractor which came with the US army
(there is some traces of green paint) during the ww2. It was using by
french farmer after the war in the Sologne were all field are quite sandy.
After that it went on the south of Paris (100 km on the south). That was
the end of his life! Driving a pump for irrigation through a long network.
That was the beginning of irrigation in France. It broke because of
But now after restoration he is ready to use. It's so usefull for log
skidding and other work when you need any pulling strength
59' Hayes first start in 10yrs
This is my 59' Hayes Clipper 220 Cummins first start in 10 plus years. Put

8V53T Detroit Diesel first start
Detroit Diesel 8V53T, (turbo just
removed for test run) this is literally the first starting attempt after
bringing it home, it had sat for years. Not so many 8V53 Detroits were
made, and very few turbocharged ones,
This is one of about four I know of.
