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.
Caterpillar - D8 - Diesel - Cold Start - Cat - Tractor - WW2 - Normandy
Caterpillar D8-8R Built in Illinois USA in 1941 then shipped over to
England to join 79th armoured Div 819 Dozer Squadron. This actual machine
took part in Normandy and D-Day events. Filmed on 19th July 2008 at Barton
under Needwood Steam Rally ( near Lichfield Staffs ) What you are watching
is the start process needed before the Big Cats diesel engine can be
started. The petrol driven starter motor ( donkey engine ) is fired up
first. This generates heat which inturn is used to warm up the big diesel
engine prior to starting. The action of the starter motor also builds up
the oil pressure in the big diesel engine. When the required oil pressure
has been reached you will see the guy activate the start mechanism on the
diesel engine. Once she has fired up the primary petrol engine is shut down
leaving the Big Cat Diesel engine purring away....Sweet
Diesel ready (6hp) Compares to Yanmar L70 HD300D 4 - 4.4 kW diesel engine
I bought a bunch of these engines to experiment with B20+ (20% Biodiesel)
home Biodiesel production (for better lubricity). Heavy Duty 6hp HD300D max
4.4kW diesel engine. 296cc putting out 4kv of continuous output. 1" shaft
turning clockwise from the fly wheel end. 3.5L (.925gal) capacity. Engine
dry weight is 33kg or 72lbs. The motor as seen runs smoother at the higher
rpm's. It is a beast with torque and is a great motor for the DIY person.
I will post other applications for this motor in the future. The "Throttle
Bracket" is spring loaded so you can set up a throttle cable to a handlebar
or foot pedal if you like.
The Diesel Story (1952)
Traces the development of the diesel from the Otto 'SILENT' gas engine of
1877, through Rudolph Diesel's engine, to the machines that now drive
ships, trains, tractors, trucks and cars.

2MW Generator Crank (October 12, 2006)
***PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING***
Brand new 2MW Cat 3516 Generator for the main hospital at my former
workplace. We had a contractor in doing the FIRST annual PM work on this
machine. When he went to start it, we discovered that Cat's design to
place the fuel filter on top of the machine mounted horizontally was a bad
idea, and there is no way to prime the fuel system. Poorly designed, if
you ask me! Just watch...
For anyone concerned, this was the first start on this engine after it's
first annual PM. This is *NOT* the main backup for the hospital, it's a
secondary backup to a set of 3x 1.75MW generators in another room, which
serve as the main backup for the building. This generator was not even
'on-line' as part of the system yet, as this generator had not yet been
Start Deutz Traktor - old engine start
Von diesen wunderschönen Treffen habe ich auch eine DVD erstellt.
Auf dem Bulldog Dampf und Diesel Treffen 2009 in Markkleeberg bei Leipzig,
konnte ich den Start eines Deutz Traktors miterleben und filmen.
Mit viel Qualm erwachte der Traktor zum Leben.
Panther tank engine, first start in tank
Here's the first start of a Maybach V-12 in a Panther Tank. The next step
is to install the tracks and test drive the bare hull without the turret.
