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

Cranking over the pony motor and lugging the big diesel to life for the first time since about August last year, then taking her out for a quick stroll.

The power unit is clearly COLD hence the reason it is struggling to start.It does start once the cylinder temperature rises around the 1:12 min mark. So,Please, Please stop telling us all how cold it is in your country this video is not about that.All comments made about how cold it is in your country will be deleted,we are not interested.Thanks.

Caterpillar D8 - Vintage Working Weekend
1964 Caterpillar D8 filmed working the land at East Midlands Vintage Working Weekend, Commons farm, Braybrooke, Market Harborough. 15th and 16th August 2009 The theme was International & Caterpillar, working crawler tractors demonstrating the art of working the land. This CAT was the biggest one there, Caterpillar D8 H 22A built around 1964 dragging behind it a Sub Soiler / Ripper used to break up the sub soil in a field thus creating better drainage, usually used after the soil has become compacted. This video demonstrates the brute force needed to pull this kind of implement up hill and down dale, something the big CAT has in abundance... Driven by John Holman

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.

Bump starting a Caterpillar D8
So you stalled your D8...do you really want to mess with getting the pony started when there's another D8 around? 2 old Caterpillar D-8's clearing land at the National Pike showgrounds, Brownsville PA. The show will host the Historical Construction Equipment Association (HCEA) National (International) Convention in August 2008, and more space is needed for the large number of machines expected. Plans include a serious turnout of pan scrapers of all eras, and a Euclid TC-12 twin dozer. ...and of course 2 working steam shovels.
