Cummins Diesel Engine First Start

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.
