Restoration of Fairbanks-Morse Y-VA & start on Dec. 26, 2006
Fairbanks-Morse Y-VA restored and started by Steve Phillips at the
Penngrove Power & Implement Museum. Attaching flywheel, discussion of
injection system and its refurbishment, starting engine and discussion of
This is one of three Y-VA's known to be in operation in the United States -
it is an example of the transition from "hot-head" starting diesel engines
to more modern fuel injected self start.

HTZ T-150KM with Scania DS14 V8-diesel starting -4 degrees.
I installed Scania engine in Harkov T-150K last winter because the old
engine was leaking coolant to engine oil. There's self made adaptor plate
between engine and transmission case. Scania DS14 engine was bought from
junk yard. I made it only minor repairs to the engine like replaced one
broken cylinder liner with new one and installed new nozzles.
DEUTZ V12 DIESEL MODEL A12L614 YEAR 1954
Here is a running example of the very first V12 model DEUTZ made, dating
back to 1954. They only made this A12L614 model for 6 years. It is 16
litres in capacity and air cooled. The design dates back to before WW2 but
their construction could not commence until Germany was rebuilt.
The Deutz V12 are very rare and this is one of the oldest running examples
I am running modified airfilters and Exhausts.
3 TON FLYWHEEL 'COLD-START-UP' @ Trimpley Steam Rally 2 Aug 09 Vic & Roger Starting the Petter
Brought to you by 'Racerroy'
Enjoy watching Vic Narborough assisted by Roger Coleman Start ONE of only
a few remaining of its kind IN THE WORLD a Vickers Petter 2 cylinder
Diesel engine, designed by Rudolf Diesel and built in 1926 by Petters,
Rudolf Diesel was born on the 18th March 1858 and died 29th Sept 1913
This engine was built in Ipswich and it pumped fresh water at a location
somewhere in North Yorkshire and then stood idle for many years.
According to its current owner when he was made aware of it and its
whereabouts made an approach to the owner with a view to buying it which he
The Engine weighs in at 9ton and the Flywheel weighs 3ton, at 250rpm it
will develope 125bhp, it is mounted on a 1979 Foden and the combined weight
is + 20 ton. the Foden Lorry started life as a Snow Plough & Gritter for
Monmouth County Council.
While being used for demonstration the Vickers Petter 2 cylinder Diesel
uses about 1gallon of fuel per-hour.
Sadly Vic the owner [the one smoking a pipe passed away Dec 2012] rest in

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.
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.

Traktoren-Treffen der Bulldog-Freunde Erzgebirge 2013 - Festgelände 1/2 - Historic Tractor Show
Alljährlich im Herbst findet im erzgebirgischen Burkhardtsdorf bei
Chemnitz das Bulldogtreffen statt.
Dann kommen die Traftorenfreunde um ihre Maschinen auszustellen und von den
Besuchern bewundern zu lassen.
Dabei ist auch immer das Lanz-Locomobil das dann einen Dreschkasten
antreibt und diese Arbeit wie vor 100 Jahren zeigt.
Der Besuch ist immer wieder sehr sehenswert. Am Nachmittag geht es dann zu
einer kleinen Rundfahrt der Teilnehmer.
Hier der erste Teil meines Filmes. Dabei gibt es einige Traktoren auf dem
Festgelände zu sehen.
