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.
2002 Sterling Acterra Wrecker Cummins Diesel Start Up, Engine, And In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2002 Sterling Acterra
Wrecker Cummins Diesel with a 6 speed manual transmission. I take viewers
on a close look through the interior and exterior of this truck while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of
this truck designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the
MARS 5HP DIESEL ENGINE - 1st Start Up in 50 Years!
Watch as an early 1940's MARS Diesel engine is fired up after 50 years.
Originally acquired from a cane farmer in Nambour, Queensland, Australia in
the 1970's, this engine sat in careful custody with another three owners
before finally retiring with me.
MARS engines were made by the MARS Machine Tool Manufacturing Company in
Brisbane, Australia and were preceded by the horizontal and vertical Rapson
and Dutton engine, made by the same company under the Rapson and Dutton
MARS engines are not Lister clones. Mars engines are bigger, heavier and
more robust than Lister engines. When you listen to a Lister and then to a
MARS you will agree. This engine has a 3 " diameter crankshaft and not one
component is interchangeable with a Lister.
MARS engines were commonly used in industrial situations such as factories
to power line shafts which powered a number of machines, a task Lister
engines had some trouble with apparently with their crankshafts twisting
under the load on start up, and why this company made the Mars Diesel.
5 HP MARS engines were painted Maroon colour as standard from the factory
although there are variations of colour in existence. 8 HP engines were a
This engine has not run since the original owner sold it in the early
1970's. Apparently it had not run for some years before that. The second
owner sadly passed away before restoring it and it sat in a shed untouched
with the third owner.
Close friend and temporary fourth owner, Simon Devere, assisted actively in
the mechanical restoration when I purchased it and assisted in the first
start after its mechanical restoration. This man is a genius when it comes
to diesel engines and he has the nickname "The Lister Whisperer" for good
reason. Thanks "Slippery".
This engine appears to have not done much work judging by its internals.
Work to the engine includes new rings, liner/cylinder hone (the original
factory liner had indiscernible wear in it), new valve guides made to
original specs, new valves to original specs (original was bent and caused
damage to the guide) , new big end Babbit bearing, new conrod bush, very
light head machine to ensure true flatness, new internal oil pipes, new
head gasket, new oil gaskets, new high pressure line, new welch plugs in
the head and new oil pickup.
There are still remnants of the original factory maroon paint on it that
have survived the years of weathering out in the cane fields.
Cosmetic restoration is planned shortly to bring it back to its original
livery. It will be mated with a steel transporter to emphasise its
industrial heritage and will be rallied with pride.
Video of the finished engine on transporter will be posted when it is done.
Enjoy and please share if you like.
This is the only video of a Mars engine running to this date anywhere. Hope
to see more.
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
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
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
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.
