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.
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

Running M.A.N. WW1 diesel engine at 375 RPM producing 430 HP. This is a
world war 1 U-boat engine build in 1917 by Blom & Voss in Hamburg to
operate in a german submarine. However this engine never made it into a
U-boat as the war was running to an end. The engine was stored en
transfered to Holland during World War 2 to operate as a generator engine
in a water supplying company where it was producing power up to the 1960's.
It's a four stroke engine with six cilinders and a overhead camshaft. The
Exhaust valves are water cooled.
Attached to the engine is a four step, high pressure air compressor which
provides about 80 Atm neccesary for the diesel injection as common fuel
pomps where not developed yet.
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.

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.
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

Rap 24 hp semidiesel, second start attempt.
This video illustrates what happends when these two stroke semidiesels run
out due to too much oil in the crankcase. With my left hand, I block the
injection pump, so from that time the engine run on lube oil only, no
diesel at all. I have heard lots of stories about this from decades ago but
this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it is captured on video.
Luckily we had blocked most of the air intake prior to starting and ended
at somewhat over 1000 rpm. Max operating rpm is 425-450. With full air
supply, I would guess this engine would reach thousands of rpm and I could
only guess what would have happened then...
The electric glowplug short circuited so we had to rely on the propane
burner which had slightly low temperature. In this startattempt, we used an
acetylene burner and got the glowplug bright red. The crankcase was,
unfortunately, filled with too much oil so the engine was running on its
lube oil from the crankcase instead of diesel. Still some trouble with the
fuel injection, doesn't feel right when injecting diesel manually.
