Starting my '87 Chevy after 3 Years.
Hearing that old Detroit roar to life was like talking to a long-lost friend. Now I need to find an El Camino to stuff this boat anchor into!
Thanks to 1997cr80r for the suggestion
EPIC Best near fail cold start Detroit Diesel smoke show MCI MC9 bus
*READ This is the first video with my new Samsung F40 Camcorder. My
batteries are almost 4 years old, they are tired and my fuel is
exceptionally old as well. I haven't added diesel in over 2 years now. I
finally had to put some jumper cables on it. I think an 8V71 starts better.
It was 26 F during the night during the vid it had warmed up a lil to
around 50F. Keep in mind all the fluids/hidden metal are 30-40 F. I have
another cold start vid from last year. This year, I had to grab my car to
jump the bus off after the first attempt failed. I assume engine rotation
speed by the starter affects start up. Even with additives, the diesel is
just old. I put 67 gallons in I believe two years ago which filled it to
the top, there's about 179 gallons, 95% usable I believe.
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.

Old start/Cold Start Rudy's 1963 Mack B81 w/ 711 Mack Turbo Diesel. First start in 10+ years.
Rudy hauled home his most recent purchase today, a 1963 Mack B81. Two fresh
batteries got it to crank after some tinkering with the terminals. Had to
spray some PB in the turbo and pry it
free with a screwdriver. Started on ether. It's not drawing any fuel at the
moment, that's a project for another day. For now we found out his
contraption is a runner!

Ford Cummins School Bus SUPER COLD START
SHOWN IN REAL TIME. This is an old video from last winter, with some
No grid heaters (because it doesn't have them)
No glow plugs (Cummins doesn't use those)
No block heater
Sitting for Months.
EDIT 1/21/14 Since people don't read the description, the purpose of this
video was to illustrate starting an old, mechanical diesel without the use
of starting aids. I know damn well how to make one start.
CAT Diesel 3116: Cold, Smokey Start-up "The Beast"
*** Comments disabled ***
I know that cranking it that hard is bad, but it won't start in the cold if
I don't. I CANNOT USE ETHER or starting fluid in this engine because it is
equipped with an intake heater grid, though it is malfunctioning.
This 1992 GMC Topkick Tractor is not in regular service anymore, but is a
backup for another truck used for disaster response, so it must be
maintained. Part of that maintenance routine is starting it and driving it
on a 50 mile route once a month to keep everything lubricated properly and
the batteries charged and exercised..
Because the old Caterpillar 3116TA motor in it does not have Glow Plugs,
and the intake heater does not work properly, it is very hard to start in
cold weather. Today was some of the coldest we've had in a while, and the
coldest in which I've ever tried to start this truck, so I decided I'd make
a video of it.
