BIG VERY BIG DIESEL GENERATOR FIRST START UP IN 10 YEARS 16 CYL 4 turboS! DETROIT DIESEL 16 CYLINDER ENGINE KOHLER GENSET 1000 GALLON DIESEL FUEL CAPACITY. Hi, Subscribe! Thanks. This video and others that I upload from my Apple MacBook pro computer or my desktop intended to make you smile and save memories for my family and friends. Hope you enjoy! Other forms of upload that I have used is my iphone and ipad. I can't believe how fast videos are uploaded. Some things you will see on this channel is my hobbies like diesel trucks and my IH Scout. It has a 6.5 turbo diesel engine in it along with a NV4500 trans. Maybe I should have put a 7.3 Powerstroke diesel or a 5.9 Cummins diesel or even a Duramax diesel in it. Nope, they were all to heavy. The 6.5 produces 200 hp which is enough, even though I always want more horse power. Speaking of ponies, my daughter had a few horses, someday maybe a video of her on her horse. She loves her cat Katrina. yes she was named after thew hurricane. My other kids love their music. My oldest son actually composes some music. We sure love our cats, dogs and other animals. We live out in the country so there is sun rain and snow, then fog. To clear the snow I have a skid steer that acts like a snow plow. I like tractors IH tractor (International Harvester) not John Deere. Haha. It's like the old rivalry between Chevy and ford. Dodge always comes in third. Being in the country taking the motorcycle out is safe and fun. Just don't hit a deer. That would kill you. If you did die where would you go? Heaven or Hell? Tough question that needs to be answered. Read your bible. Also watch my video "This message will change your life." We are here on this earth only for a little while compared to eternity, so you must be ready. We won't get out of this life alive. Hope a war doesn't take us all out. We have the best military, but China is building theirs. They have the strongest economy in the world, backed by gold (soon). USA has way to much debt to keep going like it has. Our political landscape doesn't look so good. The politicians have figured out that they can buy votes with our money...Taxpayers money! Enough rambling on about politics, cars, trucks, tractors, nukes, the bible and on and on. You have a great day & thanks for looking at my videos, I hope they bring you a little Joy in this crazy challenging world. Thanks!

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 commissioned.
