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.

John Deere 730 Diesel Tractor Start Up (pony engine)
1959 John Deere 730 Diesel with cranking engine (pony engine). Found tractor in central Illinois and restored to present condition. 1960 was last year that John Deere made the two cylinder tractor. This announcement shocked farmers, but was a good decision for John Deere. Best kept secret in industrial history.





Caterpillar D2 start
Here is a video of old Caterpillar D2 start. First you need to start small gasoline engine. Exhaust gas of this motor goes inside diesel engine intake manifold and heats air. When small engine runs well, manual clutch is used to start diesel. There was some rust in petrol and some problems with start... Imagine what it took to start diesel without start pilot back in the old days. Let's see what happens. Video taken Maxpo fair in Finland 2007.





Starting old Caterpillar D8 dozer with pony motor
Camp Creek Thresher show, July 2009 Wavery, NE. A friend of ours starting his 1945 (I think), Cat D8 for the antique parade at the show. Pony motor has a broken kill switch, so he puts his hand over the intake to choke it off.

EMD SD70AC Startup (finally, a 710!)
Turn up your speakers! I've finally caught a 710 engine in action! Here, CSXT 4793, an EMD SD70AC(I'm guessing CSX's designation for the Big Mac), starts up and prepares to pull an OUC unit coal train out of Taft Yard. Enjoy the music. =D





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.
